Photo: Corner of the pasture from which we will view the eclipse. Grand Island Road is on the left; farm road where we parked is on the right. We are just east of Nebraska State Highway 10. (Larry's photo)
Photo: Bill with help from friend Martin setting up his camera equipment along Grand Island Road so he could get panoramic shots to the south without power lines.
Photo: While they set up, Martin's dog Winnie (aka Winslow) waits patiently, wondering what all this activity is about.
Photo: View from our vantage point back toward the cars.
Photo: We viewed from the crest of this hill in a cow pasture. Farther down is a home-made motocross track and a pond for the cattle.
