Totem Park at the Capilano Suspension Bridge

Image

The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park in Vancouver has so many great sites besides the 230 foot high 450 meter long suspension bridge, among the sites is Totem Park. in the 1930′s Mac MacEachran invited local First Nations to place their story poles in the park. According the their website the totem poles are maintained in the exact condition in which they are received.

This face was at the bottom of one of the great poles, watching the tourist, and waiting to be discovered, well at least that is what it looked like to me! I had been to visit the park as a child and remembered the walk across the bridge, but since that time so many features have been added, including a cliff walk, and the rainforest exhibition. I would recommend a visit, it is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.
