The Making Of The Cliff Walk

There is no word to describe the beauty of the suspension bridge, Vancouver, Canada:

The water below the bridge did not seem to be as plentiful as 10 years ago when we visited there.  The tour guide said that they had plenty of rain this summer.

Now:

Then:

” The bridge was originally built by George Grant Mackay, a Scottish civil engineer and park commissioner for Vancouver. It was made of hemp ropes with a deck of cedar planks, and was replaced with a wire cable bridge in 1903.”  — Wikipedia

It’s amazing that people could build the bridge in 1889 with the limited engineering tools they had.

The Cliff Walk was completed this spring.  It was a phenomenon engineering task. Those engineers and constructors were creative, genius, audacious, and daring.  Now, ordinary people can just walk along the cliff edge to enjoy the beauty of the nature along the cliff.

See how they built the it-The making of the Cliff Walk.

    • The CW is so different than any other places we have visited. It also gave me a sense of the unlimited sky of human’s creative mind. Those engineers have proved it.
