Albuquerque was one of the primary viewing places for the eclipse today. so after a long farm work day of diverse projects, we took ourselves, some internet-special eclipse shades, our cameras and a six-pack out to the pirate fort to chill out and watch the Fenris Wolf devour the sun.

the bite gets bigger
it got very suspenseful right about this point:
almost! with tree branches
and, gone. the moon ate the sun. except for that one bit. i never eat the crust, either.

an altogether magical evening.
