The 2010 Olympic Torch Relay is on it's Way to Vancouver

Olympics 2010 Torch RelayThe Olympic Torch is lit inside a bus outside of Resolute Bay, Nunavut.

Boston.com's The Big Picture has an excellent photo essay up this week about about the Olympic Torch's journey across Canada. At the moment, the flame is about a third of the way through its a hundred-and-six day, 26,000 km relay. On its journey, the torch will pass through twelve thousand hands and more than a thousand communities before it reaches its final destination in Vancouver.

Although the photos in this essay are fantastic, in many ways, I feel like I've seen this all before. The Olympic Flame has already been carried through almost every environment in every gimmicky way imaginable, which unfortunately dulls each progressive journey.
