Canada’s Tallest Suspension Bridge Just Opened in BC and It Looks Terrifying

Canada’s highest suspension bridge is open for the summer. If you dare to walk it, you will see just how high it truly is.

It originally opened last year and allows visitors to walk 426 feet above a massive canyon that will reportedly make you feel like you are literally in the sky.

Although it does look terrifying, it’s neat to see that the tallest suspension bridge in Canada resides right here in B.C.
