Capilano Suspension Bridge!!!

On Saturday, Steve and I made the trek to the Capilano Suspension Bridge!

For those who don’t know what this bridge is all about:

“Follow in the footsteps of the millions of visitors who have crossed Capilano Suspension Bridge since 1889. The original bridge was constructed of hemp rope and cedar planks. 450 feet (137m) long and 230 feet (70m) high, today’s bridge is made of reinforced steel safely anchored in 13 tons of concrete on either side of the canyon. Can you say “I made it!”?”

This bridge is one of those shaky bridges that everyone’s dad pretty much shakes the shit out of when you go on it. It’s like a ciy block long and is just a suspension bridge, which pretty much makes it feel like you are going to go plunging into the canyon below at any minute!

This is the “Treetop Village”. This is made up of several smaller suspension bridges, with little platforms at the trees. It’s pretty much the best thing ever. This is how the ewoks did it, and they did it right.

This tree is called “Grandma Capilano.” She’s the oldest tree in the park, and is 200 feet tall, which translates to “I tried for about ten minutes to get a picture of this whole tree, and pretty much could only get like half of it, but kept trying because I somehow thought I could DEFY GRAVITY and actually capture the whole thing in one shot.”

This is a little creek. It’s still GREEN here, which is like a miracle to me since I’m pretty used to Calgary being a shitty brown by now.

Little pond. Little fishies. LOTS of goof times.

Well if it isn’t MOUNTIE BEAR! THE MOST FUCKING LOVABLE BEAR OF JUSTICE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD. HE FUCKING LOVES JUSTICE! AND SO DO I!

In conclusion, it was a super cool day.

Wait, except for the fact that I said to Steve, “wow, this would be a good place to propose!” and then he’s like, “FUCK, NOW I CAN’T DO IT!” and then I was like, “WHAT?! OH SHIT I’M SORRY!”

(Wait, just to clarify, he wasn’t going to propose that day, but rather was making a mental note of the ample romantic stops along the way at this location, which I subesquently spoiled by mentioning its romanticness…oops!)

    You are so funny. You make me laugh, and then sometimes I pee a little in my pants. Good thing I don’t wear pants.

    Oh my god, I love places like that! Except I have this terrible fear of heights, so I doubt I would have been able to cross without crawling or something.

    And Mountie Bear kicks ass! I’ve never heard of him before, but I think he’s the Canadian version of the US “McGruff”, the crime-fighting dog or something.

    Yay! Ewoks!

    Steve should dress up as an Ewok and propose to you there. Now THAT would be romantic!

    OMG!!! My parents went there a couple of years ago and Daddy is scared of heights so Mommy spent the whole time mocking him and some bratty kids were rocking the bridge. But it was really nice.
