We left Denver early Saturday morning, and since it is a fairly short flight to Vancouver, we had
plenty of time in the afternoon to wander Vancouver. So we took the Seabus
(pics from 2003 trip)
and made our way up to Lynn Park. Here are the signs at the entrance of the hiking trails:
One of the main attractions here is a suspension bridge above a rushing river. Thanks to Rannae and
Rob for lending us their video camera, you will get a multimedia experience. Here are the pictures from
crossing the bridge and sign on the other side.
and the video that Mike took, with coke can in one hand and video camera in the other, crossing a bridge that was swaying quite a bit.

(lens cap reference dates back to ~1996 when we visited the Royal Gorge Bridge, and you can probably guess from the video commentary who may have dropped a lens cap into the Royal Gorge)
After crossing the bridge, we hiked down to Twin Falls. Here are video and pictures from the
trip to the falls.
