We witnessed the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, from Rexburg, Idaho. It was worth the miserable drive home!
Quick summary, with some drone footage, GoPro time-lapse, and photos.

Exciting times! After about 14 months of beekeeping, we harvested our first frame of honey. It produced about a quart. I’m not sure what to expect for the full season, but it should be somewhere around 10 quarts.
I decided to document the whole process because it’s the sort of thing I would have appreciated knowing going into it. Here’s the 10-minute video:
