Deb’s Pictures from the Olympiad and IML Walks, Feb 19 – 26

Colorado River Walker Deb Peak was in San Antonio for the full week of the IVV Olympiad and IML walks, and she shared some great pictures with us. She sent a picture or two from each day, starting Sunday, February 19th, and ending on the 26th.

The picture above shows the opening ceremony on Sunday, February 19th. The flags of all of the nations that participated can be seen behind the speakers.

Enjoy a sampling of pictures from the week of walks below!
