What traffic?


Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge, Oshkosh, NE


We viewed the total eclipse for about 2 minutes from Crescent Lake National Wildlife Refuge in Nebraska and were definitely impressed.  There were 7 other cars at the end of the 4WD road that we were directed onto by refuge personnel.  Since most of us were from Colorado, we ended up with a lunchtime party after totality ended.  Although we continued to view the remaining eclipse from time to time, it was anticlimactic after the weird light, “sunset” horizon, and bright corona of totality.

After the eclipse ended, all of us left the refuge within a few minutes of each other.  We had 22 miles of gravel-sand road to get back to Oshkosh, NE, then onto paved NE 27 to get back to out RV park in Julesburg, CO.  However, the entire 57-mile trip took only 65 minutes and we saw only one other car going our direction on NE 27.  Later we saw a TV news report that people spent 3 hours going the same distance from Alliance, NE, to Scott’s Bluff, NE after viewing the eclipse at Carhenge and one reporter spent 14 hours traveling the 250 miles of I-25 from Casper, WY, to Denver.

Boy, are we glad we went to Crescent Lake and not to either Alliance or Casper!
