Settled in for the week
August 17 – 21, 2017
For the next week I am just hanging out at camp, relaxing, reading, etc. It’s nice that I have good cell service here so I can get internet. I do start getting antsy after a few days without being able to get online.
The weather is nice – some days in high 80s but that’s okay. It cools off nicely at night for good sleeping.
On Friday I go into town to run some errands – grocery store, bank, gas, etc. I’m keeping my gas tank topped off as there is talk of some stations running out of gas. So far I haven’t seen that and the grocery stores are well stocked.
The wind is coming from the west today, so it got pretty smoky.
There is a reservoir on the way to town where there is a county park. On Sunday I take my lunch down and eat by the reservoir and go for a walk along the shore. It was a nice afternoon and good to be by the water. It is so dry and dusty up in the hills.
Finally, eclipse day is here! A little before totality the sky started to get this alpenglow.
During totality, it got pretty dark!
I’m really glad I made the effort to get here to be able to see the total eclipse. It was pretty spectacular! Will probably not have the opportunity to see another one.
