Capilano suspension bridge




Beautiful card and beautiful stamps, fact. I received this card as a thank you for an official card I sent through the postcrossing website. Isn't Alex a very thoughtful guy?




One of the Top 10 Attractions in Vancouver, Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is home to the famous, eponymous Capilano Suspension Bridge as well as several other outdoor adventure attractions, including Cliffwalk and Treetops Adventures.

Located about 20 minutes north of downtown Vancouver, the Capilano Suspension Bridge has wowed millions of visitors since its creation in 1889. Suspended 230 feet (70 metres) above the Capilano River, the Bridge spans 450 feet (137 metres) across and provides amazing views of the canyon below. Crossing the Bridge is a bit of an adventure and not for anyone who has a fear of heights--any day with strong winds, and you'll feel the Bridge sway beneath your feet!

Today's Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is a virtual amusement park of outdoor attractions. For the cost of admission to the park, you can not only cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge, you can also see a "squirrel's eye view" of the rainforest viaTreetops Adventures or traverse the dramatic Cliffwalk, a 700-foot long (213 metres), 300-foot high (91 metres) walkway anchored to the east face of Capilano Canyon and suspended out and above the river.
