Total Solar Eclipse 2017

We viewed the Great American Solar Eclipse of 2017 from the 7600-foot summit of Dixie Butte in Eastern Oregon.  To get there, we planned it so that we could drive south to Oregon after finishing our usual summer hiking trek up in the Washington Cascades.  To avoid the predicted traffic and crowds, we arrived a few days early and simply relaxed while camping up on the mountain until the morning of the eclipse.  Then we joined the Eclipse Party on the summit.  There must have been over a hundred people up there, and all of them had a great time.  Viewing a 100% total solar eclipse is a fantastic experience, and well-worth travelling to if you ever have the chance.
