Utah Olympic Park

While staying at Jordanelle State Park near Park City, we ventured out to explore the site of the 2002 Olympics.  There was a neat little free museum that had some hands-on stuff for the kids to play with, after which we went on the walking tour ourselves and saw some cool things.  We saw people training for bobsled takeoff, and the kids had soooo much fun on this little luge training apparatus.

Best Olympic game ever, the whole 1980 team lit the cauldron.   I watched it live when I was 10 yrs old.

We followed the bobsled track all the way to the top, it was quite the uphill trek
Women's luge/skeleton start I believe
