Michigan mini vacation, solar eclipse in Kentucky

Last week my whole family went to Leland, Michigan for a mini vacation to spend time together before my brother Marcus went back to Bulgaria.  We had a LOT of fun.
It was gorgeous for my runs in the wilderness.
I ran up the M22 early in the morning before traffic picked up.
Here are a few more sights from the trip.  Gorgeous.
I got to spend some great time with Summer.  We walked down to the park.
Then ran back to the cabin. 
Sunday I hauled tail to get back to Columbus to jump in a news car and head down to Kentucky for the total solar eclipse.
Let the fun begin!
We camped out at Pennrile State Park and there were lines of traffic trying to get into the park at 6AM there.
We went to follow the Knox County Eclipse Space Balloon Team.  It is a big group of students that were sending up two balloons for NASA.
Ready, set... go!
We went down to the lodge to watch the total solar eclipse.  Man! What an experience.  I HIGHLY recommend going to a spot with 100% totality for the 2024 solar eclipse, when it comes to Ohio.  
The 100% eclipsed area will allow you to take off your solar glasses and see the rays coming out around the moon.  Otherwise you will only see darker skies, but will still need the glasses the whole time.
Promo shoot photos are out! Yay! 
Dry and cool air is working in for a while. Today we will be almost ten degrees cooler than Tuesday with lower humidity and a mix of sun & clouds. We may see a sprinkle or two squeezed out of the clouds today, but most of us will stay dry. Staying comfortable and dry through the weekend with lots of sun. Slight chance of rain as we approach the middle of next week. Have a good one!
