We asked half a dozen professional Themopolisians where we should go to watch the eclipse, but much as they tried, we got little help. In the nick of time I pointed out the town’s road maintenance yard and reminded Steve that an Alaskan road maintenance guy had given great advice in another situation. Sure enough, he sent us to a perfect hillside overlooking the valley, no one around but a few horses, a herd of antelope, and a couple of highly compatible locals. When totality commenced we could hear people cheering up and down the valley. How could we have done better?
Thanks guys, you’re the best!
Glad to hear you had an awesome viewing spot. My daughter, a firefighter has told us to ask at the local fire station for a boondocking spot with a view. It’s helped us out several times.
We watch the eclipse, although not the total you experienced, from the top of Rocky Mountain National Park. Pretty spectacular!
Great idea, Linda, thanks! I’ll definitely keep firefighters in mind next time we need direction.
Glad you found a fabulous view for the eclipse. It was probably nice and cool up there too.
