TRAVEL // LYNN CANYON SUSPENSION BRIDGE, CANADA

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I was doing a bit of traveling last week. Since I was lucky enough to be able to work remotely during the week of Thanksgiving, I decided I might as well work from somewhere else! So, Vancouver. Why? Mainly because it wasn’t too far (since my break wasn’t that long), but far enough that I felt like I was actually going somewhere.

Vancouver has two famous suspension bridges: Capilano and Lynn Canyon. I chose Lynn Canyon because it’s a little smaller, and more secluded. Read: less tourist trap-y. It did not disappoint.

Though I actually got a liiiiiiiiiiittle nervous walking on the suspension bridge, it was definitely sturdy enough to hold lots of people at once. Of course, once you get over the initial shakiness, you are immersed in the beauty of the lush surroundings. Everything was just so gorgeous and green.

After you cross the bridge, you set foot in the forest where you can hike any which way, weaving in and between all the looming trees. We decided to take a short path, as the sun was almost setting and I wasn’t ready to get lost and freeze to death.

This is the nature that fairy tales are made of.

This might sound crazy but I really enjoyed how frigid it was. Although I couldn’t feel my fingers for a good 10 minutes after our hike, it really felt like winter. Whereas in San Francisco, it’s always around the same temperatures, so I feel as if some seasons really just blend together. I know right… crazy talk. Who wants cold weather?? Just me.
