Ketchum, ID – Normally it is a powder day that brings the masses to Sun Valley for skiing, but today it was an opportunity to view the solar eclipse from the 9150 ft. summit of Bald Mountain at the ski resort.
The weather was perfect, with bright blue skies, but the valley here was socked in with wildfire smoke that blew in over night. Nevertheless, it was an epic location to see the solar eclipse.
The experience of a total solar eclipse was brief, but amazing and difficult to describe. Whether it was the sudden darkness, the 360 degree sunset or the clearly visible corona of the sun, it was epic. Many attendees said that they were “moved” by it.
For those of you who missed totality, here is a glimpse of what it was like here in Idaho, and here is a link to the entire eclipse photo gallery.
