Yep, University of Virginia, Charlottesville.

 

You need to follow Tyler's suggestion and add a cover photo to your profile page.  How about this onebiggrin.gif

Resurrecting this old thread because I went to some place cool today with my EpicSki ball cap.
 
[The game is to post photographic evidence of your EPICSKI logo'd hats/stickers/etc. in interesting or unusual places this offseason?  And make us guess where you're at?]
 
Here's my latest entry with a hint.  Where am I at?  The K2 skis behind me belonged to Seba Johnson!

Yes.  This is the new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture down on the National Mall in Wash DC.  President Obama just dedicated it a couple weeks ago.  It's free, but due to popularity you have to get entry tickets online and they are taken for months in advance at this point.  One of my daughters got us in. Very interesting and well done museum with powerful themes and state of the art audio/visual display technology.  The place was mobbed including people of color in great numbers.  An amazing vibe of Black Pride permeated the entire premises. 

 

 

PS:  a little bit about Seba Johnson from wiki:  born in Saint Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  At age 14, Johnson represented the Virgin Islands in giant slalom and Super-G at the 1988 Winter Olympics, where she became the youngest alpine ski racer and first black female skier in Olympic history. She was also the flag bearer in the opening ceremony. At age 15, Johnson became the first black ski racer to finish in the top 30 in international competition. She competed again for the Virgin Islands in slalom and giant slalom at the 1992 Winter Olympics. As of 2014, she remains the only black woman to ski competitively at the Olympic Games
