i don't know if the following two pictures qualify as tourist attractions, but we thought they were interesting and a little crazy.
we visited the capilano suspension bridge, vancouver's #1 tourist attraction. the bridge is 230 feet above the capilano river and as you walk across it it bounces and sways (especially when you have tons of people walking across at the same time). it was cool and i had to resist the urge to run across so it would bounce and sway more.
once you cross the bridge you enter a treetops adventure area. it has a series of smaller suspension bridges taking you from tree to tree, giving you a "squirrel's eye view" of the forest. everthing was so green and beautiful.
how could we resist a picture with the big bear dressed as a ranger?!
we left capilano and took the tram up to grouse mountain. at the top is a huge forest that leads to more mountains. we saw tons of runners on the trails and i was jealous.
this eagle was carved into the tree. pretty cool
vancouver had totem poles all over the place. they are very proud of their native heritage. here are a few we saw.
