Enjoy "A Few Beautiful Minutes: Experiencing a Solar Eclipse" by Kate Allen Fox while you walk.

Description: "What happens during a solar eclipse? The sun vanishes. Light becomes dark. Day animals sleep, and night animals wake. The moon takes over the sky. People stop what they're doing and together, they look up. The whole world changes for a few beautiful minutes."

Free-spirited Kelsey grew up in Trafalgar and graduated from Indian Creek High School. Kelsey cherished her family, friends and her dog Marley with all her heart. She loved spending time in the sunshine and taking photos, especially with Marley. Kelsey dreamed of one day living in Florida, near the ocean. This StoryWalk was created in memory of Kelsey, and in celebration of her love for this community.

They drive to the perfect campsite, not wanting to miss the couple of minutes when the sun will be completely hidden by the moon. When the moment happens, being together makes it even more special."
