Week 6 Photo of the Week, Luge at Lake Placid, NY 1981

20 03 2009

One of my friends and I drove over to Lake Placid from Burlington, VT one winter day in 1982 to check it out. We saw the ski jump, the luge, and the ice skating arena where the February 13 through February 24, 1980 Winter Olympics took place. Lake Placid also hosted the 1932 winter Olympics. It was cool that you could get really close to the track!

We ate dinner in a German Restaurant – I remember that I had the Wiener Schnitzel. Funny the things you remember.
