So the final chapter in Steve’s excellent eclipse adventure shall end in a remote pasture in southeast Wyoming. My brother and I did some scouting today from our base camp here in Boulder, Colorado, and thanks to his amazing navigation and negotiation skills, we found a camping area where we can spend the next 2 1/2 to 3 days. It turns out that this location is less than 1/4 of a mile from the maximum area of totality. We will hopefully spend almost two minutes and thirty seconds in the umbral shadow at this location. Pretty sweet!! To make things even better, the weather forecast is showing mostly sunny skies between now and Monday afternoon. The eclipse will be over by the time any significant clouds appear. Pretty cool!!
Wish us luck! As I wish you the same!!
Here is the view from the general area of our camping area. Perfect for an eclipse!!!
See you on the other side of totality!!
