2017 Solar Eclipse

I had the opportunity to observe the total solar eclipse while hiking in the Wind River Range, Wyoming.  The sky was cloudy in the morning before the eclipse and I had hiked 14 miles up in the mountains to view it!  Luckily, the clouds parted last minute and I was able to view/photograph the eclipse.  It is truly one of my greatest memories.   8/21/2017

Kearsarge Lakes

An 18-mile day of hiking led us to our destination of the day: Kearsarge Lakes.  I just sat down for my freeze-dried meal when it started to hail.  Luckily the hail was short lived and I was able to watch the sunset with my well earned dinner as the trout began their dusk feeding frenzy.  Life on the JMT!
