Close Call

So the Sea to Ski Highway that connects Vancouver BC to Whistler has been seeing some serious widening since Vancouver won the winter Olympic bid for 2010. The local climbing community in Squamish has been a little hacked off since some of that widening removed some classic rock climbs, just off the highway. The construction crew has been digging up and blowing huge pieces of rock to widen the highway to make travel easier between the two destinations..... all at a cost.

Check out this photo - taken from Jonathan Hayward/Canadian Press from an article posted in To think - the bus driver heard the rumble of the rocks and just kept driving through it. Smart man!
