… and Treetop Walk

On yet another cool and cloudy day we decided to try this place. Old AC was somewhat leery of navigating another bridge of this sort but decided to give it a try. Once I got on the shaky structure, I wasn’t happy and decided to get off for a while. I sucked it up and then got back on and did pretty well. Three pats on the back to me, eh?

However, before all of that, I went to a lookout point and took this photo of Cuppa on the bridge. She’s the third in from the right, and you can see her a little bit better if you click on the photo. The centre of the bridge is about 230 ft above the river, approximately chest height on the Statue of Liberty if you wish a comparison.

Day 9

After the suspension bridge, we did the Treetop Walk. While we were more at mid-tree height that at the tree tops, it was still quite a nice walk. It felt good to be there despite the rather high cost. Almost $60 for the two of us was a rather steep (pardon me, eh?) fee, but I think I would still recommend the outing to someone else. However, if we’re just talking about suspension bridges, the free adventure at Lynn Canyon compares very well indeed.

Day 9

That’s one of the larger trees, but not the largest, that Cuppa is hugging so passionately. If I’ve got the signs correct (I sometimes take photos of signs), it’s a Douglas Fir that is 300 years old, stands 300 ft high, is 14 ft in circumference, and is still and youngster and still growing.

Day 9

At the end of it all, we hit the gift shop (of course we did), but got out of there without actually breaking the bank. Meanwhile, Cuppa poses with a funny looking Mountie at the door.

Finally, just to prove that AC was really there, here he is at the lookout after it was all done.
