Super late post, but a couple months ago, Harry, Andy, Brian, and I went to Oregon to see the total solar eclipse.
We camped out by the side of a road and scaled a small mountain early next morning for best viewing. Totality was amazing! The mountain became dark, cool, and quiet.
Afterwards we hiked one of the most grueling hikes I’ve done to the valley of the mountain where there was a lake. Everyone else went to frolic while I rested on a log.
It was a lot of fun!
