Partial Solar Eclipse: Live Photoblog

aprox. 4:05 PM Mountain Time  (today)


aprox. 4:30 PM Mountain time

5-ish.  Just past maximum. 

OK... that's it for me.  I'll be putting the solar viewing glasses away until August 21, 2017. 

End of Season

Today was the last of Spanish Colonial Days.  Next week the ranch has a couple tours, but we're officially closed for the season.

I'll miss it.

Some photos from today before the kids arrived:
