2002 Winter Olympics Torch In Manitou
In February 2002, the community of Manitou Springs had the honor of having the Olympic Torch come through its town. I distinctly remember it as a fairly cold day, but the town was buzzing with so many people. The Manitou schools wisely allowed students of all ages to watch the festivities as selected people ran along Manitou Avenue holding the Olympic Torch.
There was a brief ceremony at the gazebo in Soda Springs Park, and I got a photo of this enthusiastic fellow holding the torch. It was a really memorable day! -Steve :)
