I saw the 1979 total eclipse from the bluff above the Columbia River Gorge near Goldendale WA. Close to the Stonehenge Replica. It was truly awe-inspiring. I'm looking forward to seeing my 2nd one.

Good thing it is early in the day, as you will see it so much more clearly. :beer: :beer: :beer:

The eclipse will be postponed until it clears up.

We came home from the Sunsets & Crabs Gathering this past Tuesday to Smoky skies, as there were more than 200 wild fires burning in B.C. :cry:
But, things seem to be clearing up now.
I am sure those who attend the Gathering in Shaniko will have a pretty clear view of the eclipse. ;)

I'd suppose everyone in Wyoming would be disappointed to miss the eclipse because of wildfire smoke. :(

Doubly disappointed, if they have to watch their backside at the same time. :R

Perhaps we can have a few photos of our 'drops camped and shaded by the moon? :thinking: :thumbsup: :pictures:

Hey Tony, wife and I dragged our TD through your town last weekend on our way home from Banff and Glacier.
Parked on Main and had dinner Saturday evening at Fiesta al... something.

Was wishing I could have looked you up to thank you for all the advice a couple years ago while building our drop.
She's been amazing and gets a lot of use!

The PNW TearJerkers 3rd annual Fall Crawl will be coming to your neck of the woods in September.
Hope you can join us for a few nights while in the Hells Canyon area. :thumbsup:
