More Photos of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (August 13-14, 2008)

Pacific coast residents will appreciate this banana slug crossing sign at Capilano Suspension Bridge. The banana slug is a large, bright yellow slug that grows up to 10 inches long and can be found in the coastal forests of the Pacific northwest. It's the official mascot for the University of California, Santa Cruz!
