|The combination of nature and innovation can be a beautiful thing! This past weekend, I took in the Eco Adventure Tour at Scenic Caves for the first time and it was simply fabulous. The tour takes about 3 hours from start to finish and includes the suspension bridge, at 413 feet it’s the longest suspension foot bridge in Southern Ontario, and on a clear day the view is 10,000 square kilometers. Then onto treetop walking over a gorgeous hardwood forest finishing up with 2 thrilling zipline rides.|
