This past winter, after she fell, Susan Ahalt got on the phone and called a couple volunteers from her short list. Ahalt rarely needs help, but at 74, the the list of chores she can no longer do is growing. The broken kneecap only slowed her down. She knows if she can’t do the work, many will suffer.

Rufous hummingbirds move from bloom to bloom, first feeding on brilliant red penstemon flowers, hanging from the stem in rows, and then move to glowing blue globe thistle. The tiny, acrobatic birds come to Deb Koelling’s garden for food, water and shelter. They’re the stars in a spectacular free show. And Rob, her husband of 40 years, is there with his camera.

So he tried to make a reservation at the Camp Buffalo Bill — the Boy Scouts of America adventure camp on the North Fork — for some fun before heading to Jackson for the astronomical event.

After months and, in some cases, years of planning and anticipation, a total solar eclipse will arrive in Wyoming on Monday.
