Olympic Shadows in Lake Placid, New York

Today I drove into Lake Placid, New York. Every time I drive into this city, I cannot help but be in awe of the Olympic ski jump ramps, giant structures soaring over the woods.

At the beginning of June, during another visit to Lake Placid, we stopped by the Olympic arenas. Here is Trisha imitating the form of a speed skater, on the very rink where Eric Heiden won an unprecedented five individual gold medals, and set four Olympic records and one world record in 1980.

Olympic shadows are strong in Lake Placid, even 34 years later.
