One of my friends at the gym told me of some friends of hers who drove all the way to Artist Point (an hour and a half drive) in order to photograph the eclipse. It was so cold that they were unable to get out of their car for awhile, and then their hands kept freezing as they set up the camera. And they had to wait for the moon to rise above Mt. Shuksan, so for a good while they were battling the freezing temperature. It was cold down here, too, so I can only imagine.
Only two more sleeps before I get together with fellow Vashonista friend Linda and take the ferry to Vashon Island. It's going to be wonderful to have so much time! Instead of three days/two nights, it will be six days/five nights. Wow! I'll be skipping the Trailblazer hike on Thursday, but I'll probably manage to get something up on here from Vashon before the day is over. I feel a bit like a kid going off to camp!
