During our western trip last year, Pete Detterline (Montgomery County Community College) and I spent I~. five days searching for various observing sites between central Nebraska and east central Idaho. ~ pick was Guernsey State Park in eastern Wyoming for its acceptable location to the centerline, its distance from where we anticipated the majority of the 600,000 people coming into Wyoming (nearly half from Denver) would be headed, and for the hospitality that Guernsey Park officials offered to us in exchange for ous promotion of the eclipse to some of the nearly 5000 visitors that were anticipated coming into the area by August 21. We were given two spacious ymts, a circular tent created by forming waterproof fabrics (originally animal skins) over a pole frame. These ~ were first used by the nomadic peoples of cenwal Asia, but unlike their earlier counterparts, these yurts were plush, with polished wooden floors, bunk beds with mattresses, a stove for the cool evenings, and a ventilation system. How could we say no to an arrangement like that? In addition, the yurts were located up high on a peninsula of land overlooking Guernsey Reservoir with a beautiful view of 10,276-foot Laramie Peak 33 miles distant which is also in the path of the moon's shadow. This solar eclipse will be the ninth one that I've traveled to witness. It all sta~d in 1970 with a total solar eclipse in ~n, NC. Then it was 1972 -Gaspe Peninsula, Canada (cloudy); 1973-off the coast of Matait~ia, Africa; 1984-Osceola, North Carolina; 1991-offthe coast of Katlm.Kona. Hawaii; 1994-Canmillo, Texas; 1998-off tbe coast of Am~ 1999-Prospect Harb~, Maine; 2012-Chaon Canyon, New Mexico; and now here in ~y Sta~ Park, Wyoming. Say a prayer for the tern of milliuns of Ammicam and fo~gn tourisls who who Imve traveled for so long and far to bask in the monn's shadow.
