Totality from summit

Bald Mtn, Baker City, Oregon

2017-09-03

An amazing eclipse experience for me and my wife, on a great setting: the summit of Bald Mountain at 6800 feet elevation in Baker County, eastern Oregon. I’d always wanted to experience totality from a mountaintop, and I knew the U.S. eclipse was the one to go for, with plenty of wonderful locations to choose from. Coming all the way from Spain, we had planned a three-week vacation across the western States of the U.S. which we had been much looking forward to also, as we’d never been there before, either me or my wife. So the eclipse just seemed like the perfect “excuse” for the tour. And we weren’t at all disappointed. The national parks are just awesome. San Francisco and Seattle are great cities. And the eclipse was a total success, with not a single weather worry right from the start, much unlike 1999 in France (last-minute success) and 2009 in China (rained out). Radiant blue skies (the much-dreaded smoke from Oregon wildfires was not to be seen anywhere around) and 360° clear view. We thought we’d be basically alone on the mountain, but far from it, we found quite a crowd, both on the way to the top and on the summit itself, with many tents scattered all over the area. All the people on the summit were Americans, as far as I could gather, both locals and from other States, with some of them very surprised and delighted to share those wonderful moments with visitors from “Oh really, Spain!”. Most of them were “eclipse newbies”, and since I had already experienced I was hailed as a “veteran”, much to my pleasant surprise. Well, long story short, doubtless the best of my 4 totals so far, with unimaginable light and color changes, both up in the sky and on the mountains and landscape around us. The feeling of being swept over and engulfed by the moon shadow can’t be conveyed with words. “Unreal” of “extraterrestrial” might come close but there are really no words, as anyone having experienced totality knows.
