I'm watching the Men's Mass Start right now and thought I'd post a few pics from the week. Kara's been on top of posting race and family pics [ www.haleykaralars.com ] but a here are a few from my view from the past few days:
I took a beautiful classic ski yesterday on the recreational trails in Whistler Olympic Park.
At one point I needed to cross the crowd to get from one trail to the next. This stream of spectators were on their way down from the morning's ski jumping event.
Sarah Murphy (Canada/Kiwi) and I skied up the Madley Lake trails and took a few shots through a maple leaf.
Black Tusk - one of the most prominent mountains up here.
Another beautiful view from the Olympic Park.
My eldest supporter here for these Games - JerryAnn Devlin from White Salmon, Washington.
Kara, Lars and I in rings in Whistler.
On Valentine's Day Dave and I met early in the morning and got a quieter moment with the Olympic symbol. Notice the flowers strewn behind us; they lay in memory of a Georgian luger who passed away just before the Games began.
I've been able to watch a lot of events on the dozen or so Olympic channels broadcasting throughout the day. Here's Lake Placid's Andrew Weibrecht during his flower ceremony.
Bode Miller, Axel Svindal (NOR), Andrew Weibrecht - second, first and third in the Men's Super-G
American fans at the Men's Super-G.
An ecstatic Bjorgen (NOR) during the Women's Cross Country Pursuit. This is her second gold medal of the Games, and a proud one at that for the skiing nation of Norway.
The flags being raised for the Women's Pursuit at the Medals Ceremony

Bjorgen's Gold Medal.
One of the coolest moments so far was during these medals ceremonies where I was able to sit on Lars' shoulders and get a great view of the stage and crowd, and from above proudly wave the American flag. Hope everyone is enjoying celebrating the Olympics!
