A team of adventurers led by Jeff Zausch chose to climb Mt Borah, Idaho, to view the recent total solar eclipse.

The mountain range in the area was mystically shrouded by smoke haze to a level of about 9000ft.  At the peak of over 12000ft the team experienced clear skies and a wonderful eclipse transition from day to night.

Jeff: "One week ago I joined 11 other individuals on the Trip of a Lifetime. 
I have never witnessed such tenacity, commitment, teamwork and mental toughness in one single group of people. We had the time of our lives, and the greatest reward of all is knowing that I gained many lifetime friendships along the way. An experience I will never forget."

The entire team, provided with ArmaSkin, reported no blisters after their epic alpine hike.
