POSTCARD FROM SALT LAKE CITY

Salt Lake City 2002

February 20, 2002|By Candus Thomson

It's becoming the most famous animal act since Rocky and Bullwinkle.

And as a matter of fact, it's a reprise of moose and squirrel.

The hollow that holds the ski jumping runs and the track for bobsled, luge and skeleton has a mini-herd of moose that pops up along the roadside, grazes on the slopes and poses for NBC.

But, on mornings when the track isn't being used for training or competition, a group of squirrels sometimes scampers around on the icy chute.

Still no sightings of a white dog and his boy, Sherman.
