72 days to go!

From the Peak 2 Peak Gondola

This is the Overlord Glacier in Garibaldi Provincial Park, as seen looking SE from the new Peak 2 Peak gondola. The gondola cable car spans the valley between two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb. You can see live (updated every 15 minutes) webcam pictures of the two terminals at the Peak 2 Peak website. And if you happen to look at it just before 8am or just after 4pm Pacific Time you might catch a terrific sunrise or sunset this time of year.
With just 72 days to go, this is the last of my 2010 Olympic venue paintings, for a while anyway... I need to get to work on some other projects with even fewer days to go (Chistmas, for example).
