Sometimes you have to get lost to find yourself again.
So... I lost myself in Vancouver's beautiful landscape. I rented a bicycle, rode around Stanley Park and stopped to ponder the atrocities of the historic Dead Man's Island as I rode by. I wanted to walk around this island... This island filled with souls of the dead, or perhaps the undead. I wanted to feel life at every given moment. I wanted to feel what life-after-death felt like as it caressed my face. I wanted to walk past its unmarked graves.
Dead Man's Island is now closed to the public. All I could do now is picture the eerie silence a place like that could have. I got on my bike and continued riding.
Its funny how I didnt realize a suspension bridge is suspended in the air, which means it sways as you walk across it. It was a little scary to feel it sway side to side as I walked. It made it fun and daring, actually. The bridge is very well made with no chance of danger. Fun fact: It's said the bridge can hold the weight of five elephants.
This is the view from the Bridge. The fog trying to find its way out of the forest is stunning. In fact, this entire area was breathtaking.
Across the Suspension Bridge was a set of smaller bridges that go from tree to tree. They called this section the Tree Top Adventure. It was decorated with lights that made the experience glow beautifully.
I walked from tree to tree like I was 12 again, in my own private tree house.
I loved it. It wasnt easy capturing how amazing I thought this place was...
The only drawback were the crowds. It was very crowded.
The final area was a Cliff Edge Walk. This consisted of a thin and curved walkway past the edge of a cliff. I can imagine if you're scared of hight's this could be scary... I didn't think so... The park is very well done. I would recommend it. Like I said, the only drawback are the heavy crowds. I heard of another suspension bridge further down the line that's not as touristy. Perhaps next time, I should venture to that one.
