Day # 7 last day :(

We got up early on Saturday morning. We packed up everything and got ready to check out of our motel. It was a gloomy day (45 and rainy).

This is a picture of the outside of The Olympic Center.

This is where "The miracle" happened back in 1980, the U.S. Hockey team's victory over the Soviet Union. In 1932, this is where figure skater-turned movie star Sonja Henie grabbed her 2nd of 3 consecutive Olympic gold medals.

This is a mural on the doors leading into the 1980 Herb Brooks Arena. There are 4 rinks total at the Olympic Center.

You can go into the Arena and watch skaters practice. There were 5 skaters on the ice when we were in the arena. There are also guided tours, an Olympic Museum and a virtual reality ride.

While on our way home, we took this picture of the sunset and noticed a small rainbow to the left of the sun.

We really enjoyed our vacation, even though it never seems to be long enough. We have a lot more pictures that we will be posting for quite a while. Hope everyone enjoys them.
