Blog day 10: Olympic winds...
The second day in Salt Lake City brought us to the hart of the Olympics in 2002: the Olympic Park.
In the morning we drove by car to Antilope Island first, situated in the Great Salt Lake. The water is six times saltier than a normal sea. That is also why fish can't exist in this lake and the water never melts. The water looks quite green and gets al kinds of prismatic colours when you watch it from above. On the island we saw more wildlife, like bizons, but also antilopes and a coyote, something we had not yet seen this holiday.
In the afternoon we drove towards Park City by car, a top wintersports spot in the winter. Close to Park City is the Olympic Park, where they have several facilities of the Olympics in 2002 that are still being used in the winter, like for freestyle skiing, bobsleigh, luge, etc. It was beautiful to see and also to feel the atmosphere. Yesterday we already were at the Olympic square, where all the medal winning athletes got their medals in a medal ceremony.
After some shopping it was back late in the evening. For tomorrow we don't know where we are going yet.
