Solar Eclipse

28 years ago today, Frank and I were in the Lean Mean Martian Machine rocketing down the Columbia River Gorge towards the distant band of clear sky, racing time and weather to get to the clear sky in time to watch the Solar Eclipse. We finally got the sun into the clear just as we found the friends we were looking for set up on the side of the road on the north side of the river near the turnoff to Goldendale and were able to watch the solar eclipse happen in the skies overhead. What a great trip we had that day! I need to dig up some of our pictures from that trip - the Ghia was only 9 years old then and served us well on that trip from Tucson to Washington state and back!
