The Olympic Flame was carried through Stanley Park in the morning and then exited the park following a route that crossed throughout downtown Vancouver on its last day on the road.
The torchbearers on this part of the route, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sebastian Coe, had great views of the downtown skyline and north shore mountains, and passed attractions like the Vancouver Aquarium, the 9 o'clock gun, Lumberman's Arch, and the replica figurehead from the SS Empress of Japan.
But most striking to see was the flame's glow cutting through the rainforest in the pre-dawn darkness. When the flame came by, it was moving fast. Not the greatest photo-taking conditions, but a great memory.
