Here are some pictures I took of our campfire while we watched the lunar eclipse. We have about 5 1/2 feet of snow, and the temperature wasn't too bad --- about 5 degrees. Finally above zero. I apologize for the poor quality of moon pictures. Our camera is old, and by today's standards, very low end. I never could get the neat copper color that looked like the moon was glowing. But, here they are anyway.

|The fire kept us warm while we watched the eclipse|
|We made ice cream in a coffee can, and then used|
snow and rock salt to freeze it. YUMMY!
|Jed and Zeke stirring the ice cream beside the fire.|
Kind of ironic that they actually wanted ice cream with as cold as it's been.

|I can't resist roasting marshmallows!|
|We had a great night, passing the time watching the eclipse.|
|The eclipse was starting, but my camera didn't capture it well.|
|Chuck had a hard time keeping the pot of water from tipping.|
|Ahhhh. Nothing like hot chocolate beside a fire|
to warm your bones on a cold night.

color at this point, but my camera
didn't show it.

get with my camera. Too bad it didn't
show up as beautiful as it was.
