The Olympics

I love watching the Olympics.

It doesn't really matter what sport it is (though I do have favorites), I just really love to watch the Olympics. I guess it's something about watching athletes that have trained their whole lives compete for the ultimate prize. I just really enjoy watching.

Can you guess where I will be?? That's the backseat of a car. On a roadtrip in the Northwest. Seeing beautiful things and beautiful places like this:

But, again....missing the Summer Olympics. What are the odds??
