Top of the mornin’ from the path of totality! Just days before the the moon totally takes over the land of the Teton sun, we will be rolling out a little local love profiling some of the people behind eclipse planning and prep.
Kicking off the first of five valued members of a vast collective team, one of the youngest and brightest stars in this small Wyoming galaxy.

Hometown: Dermott, Arkansas
Living Where In the Area: Moose, WY Park Housing

How Long: SCA for Four Years, Grand Teton NP – 3 months

Best Pre-Eclipse Moment: Listening to elders sharing their previous eclipse experience

Weirdest Pre-Eclipse Moment: I had someone call the eclipse line and they got upset that they were not allowed to claim a parking spot until 6:00 am.
Where will you watch totality: Gros Ventre Road at the Information Tent
If you could use one word to describe what you think the Total Solar Eclipse will be like, what would it be? Distinct
Thank you Ceejay. Your service since our May community-wide prep/celebration event with GTNP and agency partners, all the way to the finish (totality) line is truly valued. Teton County & the Town of Jackson are lucky to have you.
