What are these people looking at?
Everyone has an eclipse story. It's true. It was a big event, and most people have much, much better photos of the big event than I have. But don't write this off just yet. One big part of our story is the complete abandonment of business during this time. Not one phone call in the hour proceeding totality. Not one customer in that hour. In fact, not one customer or call in the hour afterward, either. Looking around the valley, there were store employees everywhere, standing outside, customerless, looking up at the sky with uncool glasses.
But who is complaining? This was a pretty big life event. Celestial events cannot be controlled, only observed. And boy, did we observe. Except for Cayden, the lonely looking guy standing in the back of this photo. He only observed when one of us loaned him our glasses. Oh yeah, and the photographer of this photo...he had no glasses, either. Yeah, we loaned him our glasses, too.

We bailed on the sight seeing when the sun got hot and our stomachs growled for food. We'd like to do more of this and share it with you.
Happy Birthday, Zimmer kids!

A beautiful northern California sky. I liked the wispy little cloud.
And then there was the bear.
Yep, that's a sign for me.
The trip home was uneventful, except for the inevitable middle-seat hell that I am usually subjected to. The largest people on the plane were on my left and right, both flights. Ah, well.
