An Olympic look back at Vancouver 2010 (pt. 1)

By on February 10, 2014

If you have read my Introduction, then you know that my Camino has links to the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, BC here in Canada.

Way back in 2009 my wife was working there for the Games and read an article that started us on “The Way”.  During that time I flew back and forth between Ontario and British Columbia several times culminating for a three week stay in February 2010.

Here are some of my photos from that time.  Over the next two weeks I’ll try to put up some others as I edit them.  I hope you enjoy.
