We just wrapped up our first full week in Vancouver and we are in full exploration mode. On Monday, we explored just outside of the city in an area called Capilano. The area is known for a huge suspension bridge several hundred feet above the water. The bridge is made of cables and wood and sways as you walk across. It can hold over 500 people at a time.
