Day 2- Vancouver

We had another rainy day here in Vancouver, but that doesn't stop alot of folks from going out and seeing the sites. After all this is Vancouver- and it is known for it's rain. The vegatation here is amazing though. Such nice trees and plants everywhere. 
We headed yesterday to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park- a must see and a place I've wanted to see for a long time. It's a must see area, and so well put together.


I must admit I took no pictures while actually on the bridge. I almost didn't think I would mentally make it across.. but did better and was more prepared walking back across. It sways and sometimes more than others, depending how many people are walking on it, and on which sides.Something that you have to mentally prepare for. I just kept thinking of that guy that walked across the Grand Canyon and how he must have felt on that tightrope!




Gerry on the Cliffwalk. No problems here and no swaying!


Above the ground- in the TreeTops  Adventure.




After our stop at the Capilano Suspension Bridge we headed a bit more up the road to Grouse Mountain. Another must see! Took the Skyride to the top of the mountain. Once up there, we enjoyed the Lumberjack Show, very entertaining and comical.The weather was terrible but they really did not let that damper how they entertained! Hats off!



The Grizzly Sanctuary was also at the top.But missed the Eye of The Wind due to weather and visibility.
The Refuge for Endangered Wildlife is principally comprised of a five-acre mountaintop habitat that is home to two orphaned Grizzly Bears, and a three-acre Timber Wolf habitat located at the base of the mountain, which we saw on the ride down.

All in all a great place to visit. Make sure BOTH are on your list of things to do when you stop in Vancouver.



Back for the evening at the Delta at the Airport. So relaxing!

Fantastic pictures, I am sure you are having a great time. Did you notice when you live in Vancouver the residences do not really use umbrellas?

Stressed over the traffic though going through the city.
