Capilano Suspension Bridge Park/Horseshoe Bay Park - Vancouver, BC, Canada

From 7/17/2013 to 8/2/2013, I took a road trip from the SF Bay Area to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Half of the trip was spent driving up the west coast. On my trip, I visited many famous places such as Seattle, Butchart Gardens, Mount Rainier, and much more. Obviously I got many coastal shots and many places that isn't as famous. The reason I am posting it now is because the high amount of photos I took equaled a high amount of processing time. I took a bit over 2000 photos on the trip. After stitching the panoramas, compositing the HDRs, and picking out photos from the repeats, I have a bit over 1000 photos to show you guys. The photos will be split into parts. I will link you to the previous and next parts on each post just like I did with my Death Valley National Park photos and my Yellowstone/Grand Teton National Park photos. Hope you enjoy this chain of posts!

For this park, I felt it was a bit boring actually. This park might be more fun for little kids, but for adults, it isn't much. I felt like the entrance fee was a really big rip off. I didn't have much fun, and honestly, I've seen better views back in the states. If you don't have kids, I recommend you just skip this place. The place is overrated.

I thought this was kind of funny because someone carved the words no graffiti on the side of the no graffiti notice. LOL

The transparent glass at Cliffwalk. I didn't feel scared going on there for some reason. Reminds me of the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Never went to that on my trip a few years back because my parents said most people get so scared, they don't even make it onto the walk. At first, I felt a bit scared, but after I got on, it felt like normal.

That night, my family and I ate food at C-Lovers Fish & Chips. Well we had it "to go" and ate at this park. I would definitely recommend them. I love fish and chips! The restaurant's food was very cheap and it tasted very good. It was one of the best meals I had on this trip. In fact, I didn't know they gave such big portions for the price, I actually over ordered. Ended up saving some fries for the next day.
