Hi JC. Yes, you are right. The Olympic Village built in Vancouver for the atheletes of the 2010 winter olympics is home to 1,100 people. According to google, Wheaton has a population of 721. But then, the entire population of Canada 34 million is close to the population of the city of Tokyo 33 million ! If you don't like crowds you should probably not put that city on your list.
Glad you liked them, Tex. I have several more to come.
And Susie, when I was a teenager I, too, wanted to climb a water tower Fear of jail time kept me from doing it!
And thanks, cevas. I imagine just one of the high rises in Vancover has more people than some of the towns around here!
Very nice picture. Thanks, jcarroll, for showing us Wheaton.
Cool shot!! Water towers always have such stories to tell (usually involving high school kids and Boones Farm Strawberry Hill, or some equally awful fermented substance lol). Thanks for posting, JC!!
Wow! I bet it still looks the same way as it did in the 60's when we went there a lot! Thanks for posting this, JC!
Well, patsyanne, Wheaton is just another farm town just like thousands of others in the midwest. We pass through them all the time and rarely stop but they all have a story to tell.
And Chickie, I never noticed until you pointed it out!
What was I thinking??? LOL I meant water tower shot!
Enjoyed Wheaton, small as it is. Thanks.
Good for you, Toto! The next time Wheaton comes up in a conversation, you are ready with the answers!
And I haven't been near Rte 56 in years! (Although, Sue and I visited the Rte 66 Museum in Galena, KS, but that was on September 7th.)
Caught me on this series. I had to resort to Wikepedia to find Wheaton on the map. By the way, was that you I saw yesterday taking photos on Rte 56 in Kansas?
Nice water shower shot jcarroll.
Their water tower has character; I like that!
Also, notice a tornado siren in the lower left.
