I’ve stood on the 137 metre (450 feet) long and 70 metre (250 feet) high swinging bridge many times throughout my life. As a kid, it was thrilling, as a teenager, it was cool, and as an adult, well, it’s still both of those things.
The Capilano Suspension Bridge was built in 1889 and continues to be one of Vancouver’s top attractions. Just in time for the summer season this year, the park opened a new “bridge” called Cliffwalk. Instead of swinging across the canyon, though, this 20 inches-wide platform extends out from the side of a 160 million year old granite face and 300 foot cliff. It just might kick the suspension bridge’s butt.
Here are some photos taken this summer:
