I headed to the Wind River Range for a week to view the Eclipse from a summit.  I shot some pictures and video along the way.  It ended up being the most inspirational trip of my life.  I'm actually looking into other trips to view eclipses from other remote peaks.

It truly was.  We couldn't have had a better setting or weather for this.  Definitely lucked out on this one.  If you've never visited the Winds I'd highly encourage it.


The music is a local Chicago Band.  Definitely check them out, they have some super rad tunes.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
