Coffee at Capilano.

If you have an afternoon or morning free in Vancouver, grab the free shuttle bus that leaves from many spots downtown, and head to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park.

The park is a beautiful nature area, even on the misty, rainy day I visited.

At the entrance, some native totem poles welcome you.

The main suspension bridge is awesome, views to the river below and surrounding forest on both sides. It swung quite a bit, so I put my phone away rather than lose it over the side to the fast moving river below.

Once you get to the other side, the “tree tops” walk awaits. 7 mini suspension bridges set among the tree tops. The park area is temperate rain forest and was so nice, I had to drag myself away.

Back over the main bridge to a sweet little coffee place. I had a coffee, locally brewed and delicious, along with a piece of vanilla and maple fudge that I bought at the Trading Post in the park.

On a sunny day, you would probably spend even longer in the park.

Free shuttle bus back to downtown, through Stanley Park, leaving nature behind till next time.

    Loved the real totem poles and the soft diffuse light outdoors – that bridge is really long!

    Thanks for sharing
