Eclipse 8-21-2017

We were at our friend Elizabeth's Home with a few friends for this epic bucket list event. She had her Air BNB guests well taken care of and the rest of us had a spectacular time on Walden Ridge, high above Rockwood, TN. WOW! Lucky you if you get to stay here.

Totality was totally awesome!

For two minutes and 32 seconds Rockwood's lights turned on.
