The original Capilano Suspension Bridge was built by George Grant Mackay in 1889 to access prime forest lands that he purchased and protected from logging. The bridge was originally suspended on hemp rope. In 1956, the bridge was rebuilt. This time the pre-stressed wire cables wire cables were encased in 13 tons of concrete at each end. Today's bridge uses 2-inch steel cables capable of supporting two fully loaded 747's .

There is more here than just the amazing Suspension Bridge, so Karen and Lee Duquette continued on to Loggers' Grill, the Living Forest, and the Treetops Adventure.

Yes, there are more suspension bridges - In all, the rainforest canopy walk is 650 feet long and made up of a series of cable bridges suspended between platforms that reach as high as 12 stories and go from the forest floor to the upper branches, and from deep in the forest to the edge of the canyon and back again

Note: Years later, after Karen and Lee Duquette became known as the Two RV Gypsies, they returned to The Capilano Suspension Bridge in 2009. The photos are more than what is shown here, and different because they really explored the entire place since were not on a cruise or with other people. They also went to other nearby places. If you wish to see those photos, click here. There will be a link at the bottom of that page to take you back to this Alaska Cruise menu.

Then it was time for Karen and Lee Duquette to board  the Norwegian Sun cruise ship.
