I jumped on my bike to head up to view the eclipse. These pics are near the town of Stanley, Idaho, along the Salmon River. The light was super eerie because these were seconds after the sun emerged from the total eclipse. I had just ridden through the town and was going to pull over and set up a video when the sun went black. I pulled over in darkness and had to scramble for the camera, me being freezing cold after hours of riding in the morning chill while reaching my planned destination.
Taking a moment to warm up before reaching my eclipse viewpoint. The sun was probably about half obscured at this point.
On the way I passed through the town of Arco, Idaho. High school seniors had been branding the cliff sides for decades!
My son and G'daughter came for a visit after 7 years. He has been in Army 17. They live on the east coast. I took them out to the Carson City Range. This picture is of him shooting my Henry color case hardened .30-.30 with Octagon barrel.
Next picture is of the Silver Queen up in Virginia City. Her dress is made of Silver Dollars.
Atomic Liquors, oldest free standing bar in Vegas. The Rat Pack and others used to come here after their shows downtown to hangout and wind down. Back in the day they used to go up on the roof to watch to watch the nukes being exploded up north, hence the name.
Prepping for a pool tourney at the Rio
Not a great pic but poker players will recognize this as a good day at the office.
