Plenty of sites right now at Rend Lake. 4 loops at Wayne Fitzgerrell state park are non reservable. If you're in the area come join us. They will fill this weekend.

I get these sort of things forwarded to me at work. I looked on the e-mail and couldn't find a link, just the attachment that I just attached to the forum post. If I get any more of these, I'll put them here as well.

All the same information is here, just not in the neat little summary: http://www.weather.gov/riw/eclipse

About one minute after I posted the last response, a new Wyoming forecast showed up.

I backed up.
For any area, start with http://www.weather.gov then click on the portion of the map you'll be.
Then under "Headlines", click "a total solar eclipse will be ...."
That will give you information for aug 21 if you're in the path.


BTW, from what I've read, the previous solar eclipses in our lifetime were not total eclipses, but rather "annular" meaning a ring of light was still visible because the Moon is farther away or the Sun is closer.
I hope this is exceptional.

I'm traveling down I85 and the overhead signs are already cautioning about traffic problems expected on Monday. Betting most people will filter in before Monday!

Stay away from I-85 in Greenville. Many closures, poor signage. 26 is a better bet

Looking for a last minute camping spot along center of the eclipse? Hapi Trails in Driggs, ID still has spots available. The site fee is a donation to their horse rescue operation. Less then a mile from the center line, views of the Tetons, not far from Jackson, WY. Hoping to see a few other Airstreamers there.

Updated Wyoming Forecast

This will be the last one of these I post, as we'll be hitting the road tomorrow morning. It looks like conditions for the eclipse should be pretty good across Wyoming.
