So Karen, our son Noel, and I joined the hordes and drove to a rest stop just north of Lime, Oregon, arriving about 4:30 Monday morning. And any lingering doubts we had about the advisability of the enterprise were put aside after the event. Following are photos documenting our conversion.
Afterwards, we had a picnic and then decided to drive south a few miles to visit Lime, where Paul Dorpat told us an abandoned cement factory still loomed. We wandered an apocalyptic moonscape of graffiti, art, and lost children – a perfect aftermath comprising melancholy reflection and an exquisite sense of mortality.

Spectacular, Jean, simply spectacular– the eclipse and Lime both. Glad that you, Karen, and Noel made the journey.
There’s another solar flare at 3 o’clock, too. I can see it on yours, and here’s another look: https://www.instagram.com/p/BYEWxpiFmW-/?taken-by=aaronbrethorst
Thanks, Aaron, for the alternate view!
