Capilano Suspension Bridge

One of my favorite places in Vancouver is the Capilano Suspension Bridge, even though it's a little touristy.
It's suspended high above a chasm, I hope you're not afraid of heights!
It was rainy and misty the whole time we were there, but that meant I had to find places where the mysterious feeling would come through more strongly. (And shield my camera as best I could, as it's not a professional weatherproof model - it's been through a lot more than it was designed for!)
This is my Scenic Sunday post for the week - join me on Monday for some views from the bridge. And I'm also entering it in Sunday Bridges, as it's a wonderful pedestrian bridge.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Nice photos, Al. I am not a big fan of the Cap Suspension Bridge as it is so overpriced, but your photos are great. :)

    Have a nice weekend! Cheers, Dani

  13. wow!!!! my husband and brothers better not be there when I am there, the beggars would shake so much that the brdige would wobble so much that I can't move a step, and that was an even shorter bridge.

  16. I've seen the sign on Highway 1 but have never stopped. With my fear of heights I don't think I would get very far across. - Margy

  20. Beautiful -- I'm not afraid and I'd walk it, but I'm not showing this post to Bill. It's not so much heights he's afraid of as the fact that he never quite trusts the suspension bridge builders!

  22. Your photos are so fabulous that my legs are trembling now!! I feel already as if I was on the bridge, but I am badly afraid of heights. I hope you did not have any rain, lightning or thunder here.
    I love especially the first photo. I have not seen such a long, long suspension bridge of this type!! You captured amazing sceneries !! Great shots!
