August 19-21, 2017: Total Eclipse of the Sun, Eastern Oregon

For the 2017 total eclipse, a friend and I camped out on a ridge in Malheur National Forest for the two nights prior to the big show on Monday morning. In retrospect, the statewide mayhem wasn't nearly as awful as feared, so we probably didn't need to go quite so far out into the Middle of Nowhere. Also, I'd read somewhere that if it's your first eclipse, you shouldn't try to take pictures during the event... but now I wish I'd at least taken a few. So most of these photos are of flowers and bugs from Saturday and Sunday.
