Abravanel Hall, location of many of the Olympic Art events, sports a biathalon athlete.
A snowboarder soars above the Assembly Hall at Temple Square. Needless to say, this is not a sight likely to be seen ever again.
I can’t help but smile when I see this shot. I wonder what Brother Brigham thinks of all the Winter Olympic festivities? This statue of Brigham Young, dusted with some fresh snow, stands at the entrance of the new pedestrian walkway and park (formerly a portion of Main Street). The Olympic hockey goalie hangs from the Zion’s Bank building.
Temple Square spires and an Olympic figure skater point towards the heavens.
Adjacent to the Marriott Hotel, a downhill skier hangs. Everyday I see this banner from my office breakroom.
The 13th story tinted window of a local hotel provides a different perpsective of the Olympic banners. From the Medals Plaza nearly all the banners will be visible.
One of the first buildings to get a facelift was the Marriott Hotel on West Temple Street. Near the skiers left hand, you can see two workers attaching this banner. These men were suspended in harnesses typically used for cleaning windows. And I thought I had it bad when I hang Christmas lights.
A snowboarder looms high above the cityscape. Snowboarding is a relatively recent addition to the Winter Olympics. Fore more on even newer sporting events, read the article “Olympic Advance” in Meridian.
This shot provides a stunning view of more Olympic banners with the Wasatch Mountains towering in the background.
