Ring of Fire

Yesterday afternoon we loaded all our kidlets into the van, picked up a cousin and headed up to Ruby’s Inn/Bryce Canyon to view the Solar Eclipse. It was AMAZING!  Bryce Canyon has been holding its annual StarGazing Astronomy program so we were able to score cool Eclipse viewing glasses for everyone.  We took a picnic dinner and staked out our territory on the grass and waited for the celestial event.
