Just another sunny day

22 08 2017

Piedra, Aurora and Terra; McKenna Peak and Temple Butte. Solar eclipse.

Except that it was the day of a solar eclipse.

It wasn’t particularly noticeable in southwestern Colorado. The light got a little “weird,” like a high, thin cloud was over the sun in an otherwise mostly clear sky. I didn’t actually look skyward, not having the special glasses, but the weird light lasted quite a long while – 30, 45 minutes?

No blindness was caused in any wild equines within my view (two bands). 🙂 In fact, as far as I could tell, their behavior didn’t change at all.

It seemed quiet … but it’s usually quiet in the basin. The only other thing I noticed was that it didn’t seem as hot as the clear, sunny sky suggested that it should have (our temps have been back in the 90s).

Our day of the solar eclipse was another gorgeous day in Spring Creek Basin. 🙂

Same here, TJ – a bit of strangely dim light and some obvious cooling; that’s it! And those mustangs look great, even in “weird” light! 🙂
