The Olympic Torch reached its resting place in downtown Vancouver during the evening of the 12th of February 2010. The torch was brought there by the final torchbearer, Wayne Gretzky, the world famous hockey player. It is now lit on a massive cauldron. Unfortunately for the public, the closest they can get to the cauldron is about 15 seconds walking distance. Furthermore, They can only see it from a section of fence that is about 5 meters long and 2-3 meters high. During the daytime, it is almost impossible to get a photo because of the thousands of people gathered to see the torch. At nighttime, around 9:30pm, it becomes possible to take decent photos and even get a picture with yourself and the torch. At this hour, there are fewer people than earlier in the day.
