On Tuesday, I made my first visit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in North Vancouver (thank you, YWiB SFU!). For an afternoon, I was immersed in the spectacular natural wonders of Beautiful British Columbia. The walk across the swaying Suspension Bridge offered stunning picturesque views of the rushing Capilano River below, the surrounding forest, and the marvelous mountains in the distance. Other noteworthy sights include the Cliff Walk (a semi-circular, part-glass path around the edge of a cliff above the canyon which makes you feel like you’re walking on air) and Treetop Adventures (a series of mini suspension bridges up in the tall trees which makes you feel like Tarzan!). It was a truly refreshing and tranquil experience, reminding me of the importance of conservation (of trees, plants, vegetation, water, and wildlife) and the beauty of nature (which I too often take for granted). The next time I wander around a forest, I will remember to see the sights, feel the air, smell the freshness, hear the music, and appreciate the world around me!
