Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Here in our part of Wyoming we were lucky enough to be in the path of the solar eclipse.  Worland was at 99% of totality.  Brian really wanted to see the whole 100% so after the kids went to school we hopped in the car and drove to Shoshoni, about an hour away, in the path of complete totality.  It took a bit longer than an hour since there was a lot of traffic, for Wyoming anyway.  It was worth the drive, simply spectacular!  We didn't have the right cameras and lenses, but I took a few pics while we were there.

This is where we parked our vehicle, about 5 miles on a dirt road outside of Shoshoni

Middle of nowhere

 A few other people out there with us

Directly in front of us was an RV with a cute little girl running around

There were people scattered all along this dirt road

At our feet-lots of cacti
Taking a pic with our phones shows none of the eclipse which is amazing since it was well on it's way here.

It's over half way at this taking, still plenty of light.

Sitting in the back of our vehicle, Brian is looking fine with those glasses!
Here is the 360 degree sunset, it was pretty amazing!

Much more traffic on the way home.

I know this looks like nothing, but realize when we normally travel this road you rarely meet another car.

Summer happenings

This summer is quickly coming to a close.  Here are some of our memories:

Brian and Andy went to Kansas City, here Andy is in Adam-Ondi-Ahman.

This scene in our house repeats itself over and over

Our Van is growing bigger just like his smile!

Watch out!

Van thinks the Coyote skin is a doggie, comfy to cuddle.

This is my favorite face
