Totality Heaven

Margaret E

Horseshoe Bend, Idaho


We just happened to be in Boise, Idaho to drop my son off at college. When I realized we would be there during a total solar eclipse I started my research. really helped me find a location only about 40 minutes north of Boise. I had no idea what to expect, if there would be crowds and traffic, so I got my husband and son up and out of our hotel at 8:00 a.m. It was a perfectly clear day. There were no big crowds and no traffic (shocking now as I think of this, why not make the trek to totality when you are SO CLOSE!!!!!?????)  We drove to Horseshoe Bend and pulled off of the road where some people had gathered. Unfortunately, we had no cell service so I couldn’t use my app. The last reading I got was that we were in one second of totality so I started to second guess myself. Was I wrong? Did I think it was one minute but it was only one second in Horseshoe Bend? So I thought maybe we should keep driving north, but my husband convinced me that I had done my research correctly and we asked other people and we knew we were in a good place. We watched through our glasses (which I got last minute from to replace my recalled glasses) as the temperature started to drop and everything started looking different. Or maybe it was more of a feeling. Everything felt different. For about one minute and 14 seconds we were in complete awe and amazement. I really can’t explain, except that it was beautiful and a vision I will NEVER forget. My husband and son were thankful that I planned this out. I definitely plan on getting in the center of the eclipse in 2024!!!
