We were taking a short vacation to Vancouver last weekend. Spent a bit of time walking in the Capilano park of course, it's all wonderful - the history, the engineering of the walks, abundance of ferns, and the public - very entertaining.

Took a ride in Grouse Mountain Gondola for some amazing views of Vancouver. The link can be found here.
