canyon lights



Last night we visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see their holiday Canyon Lights display. Usually a scary walk for me across the lengthy hanging bridge, it wasn't too bad this time since it was dark out when we got there.... it makes a huge difference when you can't see the 230 ft drop below. The top two photos are ours... but I have also included the bottom photo (credit to the Capilano Suspension Bridge website) since it actually shows the bridge relative to the canyon. After enjoying the lights, we warmed up with some yummy dark hot chocolate... mmmm... a bit of a reward for me making it across and back without freaking out.

Beautiful photos! You're braver than I am! I would still know the bottom is waaaaay down there!

How gorgeous! I'm not sure I would be able to cross it, even at night. Thanks for sharing :)

I think I'd still be freaked out. I've crossed that bridge twice in my life. I think it's enough hehe.

Oh Valerie, I am with you on the scary walk! When I lived in Vancouver (years ago) I never had the courage to cross the bridge and on each subsequent visit I have tried but only get to the edge, it makes sense to go at night. :) Smart girl :)

Beautiful pics, now I want to go :)

Have a wonderful day, regards, T.

Very pretty, although I couldn't help feel a little bit of anxiety looking at that bridge.

I use to live so close to there but never been. It's on the list!

Wow. I wonder if I'd have the guts to go through with a walk across a bridge like that. Pretty pictures.

Fern said...

I can't believe you walked across that! You're brave! I could never - only if my life depended on it. Gorgeous view I'm sure, but SCARY!

Thank you for sharing! I think this is as close as I'll be getting to any bridge like that. LOL

I visited this bridge last summer, such a great experience!

Nikki said...

How very pretty. Is the last photo the bridge in the daytime? Oh that is scary but I would do it. It might not be as frightening when lite up in the dark so I can't look down.

Your pictures are so pretty. I don't think I could walk across that bridge even if it were dark. You are very brave!
