North Vancouver & UBC

Vancouver - Today we headed off to the Seabus and the Lynn Canyon Park Suspension Bridge (Read: Why pay $30.95 per adult to walk over the Capilano when the Lynn Park is free...yup...butkiss, zero, zip nada...I rest my case).  

It was a faboulous trip over on the Seabus from Vancouver to the Lonsdale Quay and Lonsdale Quay Market.  We nosed around the Market for half an hour, looked up the bus schedule and were on our way up to the Lynn Canyon Park Suspension Bridge.    We spent an hour at the Lynn Canyon Park hiking and bouncing on the suspension bridge over the falls on Lynn Creek.  The view was spectacular. 

Following the Suspension Bridge we returned to the Lonsdale Quay Market for lunch at McDonald's (I was having a Big Mac Attack...nuff said).   After lunch we hopped on the Seabus to return to Vancouver.   From Waterfront Station we headed over to University of British Columbia (UBC) for walkabout of the campus.  We discovered a breathaking view of the mountains behind the Museum of Anthropology (we'll visit the museum later when we have more time). 

Here is a sample of that view:

Note:  I've started uploading more photos of my trip on the Vancouver page of the Scrapbook Section of My Website.
