Travel Theme: Wood

…here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide…
 — E. E. Cummings “i carry it in my heart”
two-wood -5
tree recycle-1

Tree-top-1

Eight bridges connect those trees enabling tourists to venture from one magnificent Douglas fir tree to another, some are reaching as high as 100 feet (30m) above the forest floor. An amazing innovative construction at the Capilano Park, Vancouver.

Note: I apologize for reposting these photos that I used in another post a couple of years ago. I could think better photos for this inspiring theme. Hope my new readers and followers will enjoy… :)

  1. Glad you recycled theses pictures of the skyway through the woods – it must have been a real treat walking up there among the upper branches :)

  4. As a new follower, I’m glad to see these. They’re wonderful. I don’t know if I would actually have the nerve to walk across that bridge. I seem to have developed a fear of heights since getting old! :)

      100 ft up… it’s kind of high especially when you look down from the bridge :)

  25. Oh dear Amy,there is no reason to apologise for re-using those magical photos for the theme.Believe me,they are shots that merit more than one look …The introductory part with the E.E.Cummings verses add a very special dimention to your well-selected,bright images !!! Nice POV !!!

    January 28, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    • Amy

      Thank you so much for mention the E.E. Cummings poem, my favorite :) I’m so happy I can share the photos and the verses with you, Dear Doda!

      January 28, 2014 at 7:20 pm

  26. I believe I’ve seen the bridge before from your previous post, or maybe a different bridge or different angle. It’s about you put it into good use again. I love bridges like that.

    January 29, 2014 at 2:11 am

    • Amy
