When I was in Vancouver recently, my former college classmates and I attempted to relive our younger years by going to the historic and famous Capilano Suspension Bridge Park. Located just a short drive from downtown Vancouver, the 132-year-old park is one of Canada’s oldest tourist attractions, best visited in the fall when the weather is nippy but comfortable.
As our guide gave us the lowdown on what to expect, I stood in awe of the tall trees by the entrance. We had 15 minutes to cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge, another 15 to navigate the Treetops Adventure and 30 to take on the Cliffwalk. Could we muster the energy to complete the challenge on time? Could I, who cannot even look down a stairwell without feeling nauseous, overcome my fear of heights?
