Somehow I thought that the 2010 Winter Olympics were to be held at Whistler, BC. Oh yes, the skating and hockey venues are in Vancouver it's true. The hockey arena is on the UBC campus, right next to the gym where I go three times a week and I have watched its construction for a couple of years now. But obviously I was mistaken because the official site is called Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and here's the logo on all the T shirts to prove it. An inukshuk of course.
Well of course all the big skiing areas are at Whistler so those things will be held there, the downhill races, the slaloms, ski jumping, etc. I see the WhistlerBlackcomb Ski Resort advertises itself as the Official Alpine Skiing Venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics.
Anyway, I'll be off to Whistler for a few days to check out how the preparations are going there and taking advantage of the wonderful hiking and recreational opportunities that the area has to offer. We'll be staying with friends who have a ski cabin there and I'll be taking lots of photos for it surely is a magnificent place. Here's a teaser for you. Yes it is that beautiful at Whistler.
My Saturday Photo hunt is set up to autopost -gotta love that new feature of Blogger - so I will be playing and I will return all visits sooner or later. How can I survive without the internet for four days? Behave while I'm gone!
