Rickety bridges and canopy walks

Often times you are lured in by a scenic vista or view but to get to it you've got to cross a narrow bridge. Sometimes they call them canopy walks to sound more inviting. Some are dangerous some are not. Some holding on by a thread or could flip at any moment. Showing me some bridges that you have seen in your travels or other blogs.

This was, by a very long margin, the most rickety bridge I have ever crossed in a vehicle. Reply to this

All visitors to Vancouver BC are bombarded with ads for the Capilano Suspension bridge, a wooden slat bridge over a deep canyon, which costs a descent amount of cash. Very few know about Lynn Canyon, a provincial park that offers nearly the same experience for free. I didn't need convincing 😊

This bridge near Mount Rainier wobbles so much my camera fell out of my pocket crossing it. I finally found the camera on the riverbank under the bridge:

This one made my heart beat fast. You could see the river through the wire flooring.

Sapa, Vietnam - didn't help my confidence when a dog nearly fell through the gaps a few seconds before we had to cross this bridge.

Hoi An - apparently these bridges were tame compared to the bamboo one some other cyclists told us about.

The 'monkey' bridge on the Mekong. Obviously the visa fees are NOT going on access to where the visa is processed...
