The eclipse was awesome. I am so glad I got to see it!
Some of the group walked up the hill to the top where the main road is. They reported it was packed with eclipse viewers!
Watching the eclipse. Our friends from New Mexico joined us along with Son #1 and daugher-in-law #1. Our friend, Steve, brought along all sorts of viewing equipment including special binoculars. We learned a lot from him including to watch the 'shadows'.
The aspens were throwing waxing and waning shadows of the eclipse! Who knew?
Best I can figure out the leaves were acting like a peep hole viewer and mimicking the shadow of the moon on the sun's face.
Shadows in the dirt by my chair.

Getting dark! Seconds to totality.
And there it is! Total eclipse which looks like a sun because my camera wasn't sophisticated enough to capture how it really looked. AND my time on the camera was about 12 hours off. Dang need to fix that apparently.

Would I travel to experience this -- yes I would. I found it AWESOME.
