The 2017 United States solar eclipse has come and gone. Millions of Americans from all over the United States watched the solar eclipse pass over the United States. Even more, people watched it live on TV or over the internet or some who watched it on TV and then watched it live. I was lucky enough to be in Tennessee for work (deliberately planned that way). I got to experience 2 minutes and 10 seconds of totality with my parents.We enjoyed watching the world around us slowly darken. Suddenly, the world around me went dark for 2 minutes and 10 seconds. With the excitement of the 2017 eclipse dying down, it’s time to start planning for the 2024 North American Solar Eclipse.
Every Thursday, I will be posting a photo from my travels and a spotlight on the location. Today’s Spotlight Thursday is from the top of Guadalupe Peak. I took this photo on one of my cross-country US road trips. On my way from Tennessee to Colorado, I stopped and spent a couple of days in Guadalupe Mountains National Park. This park sits on the border of Texas and New Mexico. The closest town is Carlsbad, New Mexico. Guadalupe is near Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
