October 2014 (40.6015 Degrees, -122.4443 Degrees) Sacramento River Trail Bridge
Dear readers. I am going to be cutting back on my bridge posts for awhile. However, my URL is www.bphod.com for Bridge PHoto Of the Day. If I'm going to provide bridge photos less frequently what can BPHOD stand for?

British Columbia Province, Canadian Bridges: Capilano Bridge

June 2010 (49.3430 Degrees, -123.1150 Degrees) Capilano Bridge
Speaking of catenary bridges, a couple of years ago we visited the Capilano Bridge in a private park that cost $36 to enter. For some reason, they called the main attraction a suspension bridge and when I tried to explain to the park workers that it was a suspended bridge, they turned a deaf ear to my complaints.

It did cause my heart to beat a little faster as I walked across the bouncing deck high above Capilano Canyon. The bridge was originally built by George Grant MacKay (a Scottish engineer) in 1888 and the surrounding land was slowly developed as a tourist attraction over the next 126 years.
