Capilano Suspension Bridge – Canyon Lights - December's Season of Celebrations & Sharing

 

 

Are you finding the holiday break a little dull?  Do you need some thrills and chills?  Dig deep, find your inner superhero, and get ready to traverse the Capilano Suspension Bridge – by night! 

Canyon Lights-Capilano Suspension Bridge

 

 

The Suspension Bridge is donned with clusters of lights, leading the way to the other side of the park, where more lights await.  Granted, the bridge is a little wiggly, but that just adds to the adventure.  If ignorance is bliss, then crossing this bridge in the pitch black of night solves the problem of Vertigo.  You can’t really see the complete blood-curdling drop of the rapidly flowing creek beneath you.

Once you reach the other side of the Bridge, there are more “mini” swinging bridges to walk over, again magically lit with lights.  Relax, have a hot chocolate, then brace yourself for the wobbly walk back on the bridge.  There’s a lovely display of First Nations totem poles and artifacts lit up with Christmas lights.

I think I have vertigo just looking at the "wiggly" bridge.  What a wonderful, and different, way to celebrate Christmas.  Thanks for sharing this Sally.  (And thanks for all the comments on my "gift" posts!!)  Merry Christmas!

Fred - Why thank you!  That's a pretty nice Santa you've posted here - looks like he got into the cognac!  Merry Christmas!

Kristine - Oh, if you're a thrill seeker then you'd love this bridge - just remember, no bungie jumping off of it!  Love the Vermont photo - so gorgeous.  You should sell the rights to Hallmark!

Kathy - Yes, this Suspension Bridge is pretty popular with locals and tourists alike.

Laura - You'd be amazed at how tame the bridge seems in the dark... now in broad daylight, it's another story!  Thanks for stopping by and have a very Merry Christmas!

Carla - Thanks so much for all those gift posts - it was a great idea, and really fun to check out each day.  I'll miss them, but hopefully you'll do it again next year!

The hot chocolate and all the lights sound awesome, but those wiggly jiggly bridges scare me to death!
