Stanley Park
Vancouver has a rainy climate, and I did not see the sun at all during the three days I spent there. However, I was still able to get the magic of why this city has long headed the list of most livable cities in the world. I strolled along the bay, and searched with a map and found that large maple tree in Stanley Park, and only then did I discover that an owl that was unwilling to show its face had already beaten me to the tree and occupied the branch where the red leaves were thickest.

This large maple tree is located at the edge of Stanley Park, and if you walk towards the depths, you will not be able to stroll the entire distance without it taking the better part of the day. It takes at least 90 minutes to cycle round the park. This urban forest park (nearly 1,000 acres larger than New York’s Central Park), the largest in North America, occupies almost an entire peninsula. The towering trees that cover the sky, the broad and tranquil lake, and the native totem poles with different shapes face the beach of English Bay. Naturally there is also an endless number of people who are exercising and walking around inside the park. All of this is a very rare urban landscape for us.

The birth of the primitive forest inside the park was determined by legislation at the time of the city’s foundation in 1887. In Stanley Park in October, you will be deeply moved by the sight of the red leaves of different shapes that are fluttering and falling no matter where you walk. But the locals will proudly tell you that it is the cherry blossom festival in spring that is the most enchanting time. I really only learned this after visiting Vancouver; before then my understanding of “livable” standards was very poor.

The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed
The Cathedral of Vasily the Blessed is the most famous church in Russia, its onion top rooftops composed of 9 different shapes and colors is world famous, and may be said to be a landmark building in the Kremlin and Red Square area. Here the delicate and outstanding architectural artistry of this Eastern Orthodox church appears in vivid detail, and is now part of the national historical museum. Inside there are many wall paintings worthy of admiration of Eastern European peoples from around the 16th Century.
The church was constructed at the end of the 16th century, in order to commemorate the pacification of Kazan Khanate by Ivan the Terrible. It is said that Ivan the Terrible ordered the architect to be blinded, so that he would never make a building more beautiful than this one. This story discredits Ivan the Terrible while at the same time paradoxically reflecting the great beauty of the church.
St. Basil’s cathedral is composed of a series of small churches. At a glance they form a tangled maze, but in fact they have a regular organization: at the center of each church there is a lofty tower with a high arched roof, with a height of around 47 meters. The drum shaped dome is golden and shining, and the beam-shaped cylindrical tower is inlaid with niches on upper levels, and on lower levels has a row of high oval windows. Surrounded by 4 large chapels with octagonal towers, the roof is adorned with a huge “Onion Head” dome. Diagonally, between the 4 towers, there are 4 small chapels. The front doors of the 8 towers all face the winding corridor of the central church, and in all directions the outside of the church is surrounded by corridors and stairways.
The colors of the onion head domes are magnificent, scintillating in the sunlight, seeming like a castle out of children’s tales.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park
It takes only 10 minutes to drive, and Vancouver people can switch from the city center to the magnificent mountain mode. Take the 99th road through Stanley Park, cross the stalwart's Lions Gate Bridge, and then drive for three or four kilometers to Capellan. Kapelano Suspension Bridge Park. This swaying ancient suspension bridge is 20 stories high from the rushing Kapelano River valley bed. I watched some of the heightened tourists grab the railing and bend their knees forward to move a little. Walking on the top, although the bridge is also trembling, I can overlook the valley forest from the perspective of God, so I am not willing to take half a step.? Crossing the suspension bridge is a piece of virgin forest, each of which is a towering tree that has been baptized by the years.

The air has the unique taste of the cedar trees, and it is refreshing. We walked under the tree, and some people were walking in the air on the top of the head. The rope bridge between the substantial cedar trees climbing down the tree roots to the treetops, we can switch to the daily. The squirrel or owl walking through the shadows of the forest is fluffy. It has a beautiful feeling. Returning to the opposite side of the Kapelano Suspension Bridge, there is more exciting to Cliffwalk. It extends from the granite cliffs hanging over the Caperan River. The forest is at the foot is full of waves. A wave of green waves because it is high enough and there are no trees in front of it. So this is also the best angle to shoot the Kapelano suspension bridge. Of course, the premise is not to be high. We walked under the tree, and some people were walking in the air on the top of the head.
