Sisters, One, August 21, 2017

Jeremy and Jeff invited Spence and I to ski Sisters during the eclipse on Monday, August 21st.

Sisters Skiclipse, Part One, the approach and first run.

Prior to our approach, Spence tests out one of the many NASA approved eclipse viewing options.

When we reached Roundtop Lake Spence took out another one of his NASA approved eclipse viewing options. Jeremy watches on while Spence and Stev work together to see an image.

I also tried using this and it did work. We were not blinded by the light and were still able to ski.

Next, we took two different approach routes to the same destination. Jeff and Jeremy "stormed the castle" while Spence and I took a more gradual approach that followed a creek before ascending the snow.

On our way up, right at the peak viewing time, Spence took out his NASA, OSHA, PSIA, CIA, FBI, and STPUD, approved eclipse viewer. Look closely to see the crescent shape on the paper.
