We have the opportunity to recognize in the moment that we are living in historic times. If you think about it, not every day brings that gift.
One of the special things that lands us in the midst of historic times is the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse that is taking place across the USA on August 21. In Oregon we are primed to be in the path of the totality.
Travel to the John Day Fossil Bed area if you want a spectacular view. No one can predict ahead of time what the weather will be like, but chances are far higher in eastern Oregon for cloudless skies than on the Oregon Coast.
