Visiting My Sister & Family in Vancouver, Canada

This past weekend I took the Amtrak train up to visit my sister and family.

Autumn Colors in Beautiful Vancouver, Canada

They live in Burnaby, a suburb of Vancouver Canada.

It is a very pretty and clean city. The public transit is excellent!

Suspension Bridge

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

We went to this incredible cool place filled with lots of nature!

This suspension bridge is 450 ft. long and 230 ft. high. Reassuringly wobbly since 1889!

West Coast Rainforest Ecosystem

Very lush!

Very Coniferous with Douglas Firs and Western Hemlocks.

We walked through 1300 Year-Old Growth Douglas Fir.

Stanley Park

Stanley Park

We checked out Stanley Park known as Vancouver’s urban oasis and one of the top city parks in North America. It is a 1,001-acre public park that borders the downtown of Vancouver and is almost entirely surrounded by waters of the Pacific Ocean.
