Olympic Security

With all eyes on Beijing's cleanup efforts in advance of the Summer Olympics, let's not forget the environmental obstacles to prepping Whistler, British Columbia for the 2010 games this winter. Above, a mudslide on the Sea to Sky Highway put a damper this week on efforts to turn a treacherous, winding two lane road (the only one linking Vancouver's International Airport and Whistler) into an infrastructure capable of handling Olympic-volume traffic.

Though, one might also say, this is just Mother Nature doing the contractors' work for them...
