Ninety nine years ago .. .617 acres of North Vancouver was dedicated to be a park.
Lynn Canyon was created by God as a plaque at the entrace to the suspension bridge says. .
"the hand of man could never duplicate".
The bridge is 50 meters above Lynn Canyon and spans 48 meters.
It officially opened in 1912.
On Wednesday when our ferry arrived back at the mainland we saw the signs to Lynn Canyon and all agreed that it had been quite some time since we had visited the park and walked across the bridge.
It has changed considerably over the years.
Where there was once mucky trails and boulders down to the water,
there is now heavy timbered steps to keep the footing safe.
It is most handy hiking with pals. .
Cameras are passed back and forth.
I highly recommend finding friends who enjoy the same activities as you do.
The maple leaves are rapidly finding their place of rest on the ground and made for a beautiful contrast with the green water.
Did I mention the stairs?
Oh yes. . .this walk is for those that don't mind a bit of heart pumping while chatting with friends.
The trail winds throughout the majestic old growth forest.
They were not slower. . .
they just had more to talk about.
The park is free. .
and the loop trail is clearly marked.
all for now
