August 21st: The Day a Jaguar Ate the Sun

"Oh man. It was actually just cool as hell."

We woke up early to watch the sunrise over Stanley Lake, then packed up camp to catch the eclipse. Afterwards, we set off on a brutal 14 hour drive, from Stanley, Idaho to Seattle, Washington, with stops in farm towns in Idaho, gas stations in Oregon and Yakima, Washington. It was a brutal day, waking up at 6:30 AM on Sunday and getting into Seattle around 5AM PST on Monday.
