Camping on the Main Salmon River Trip

If you are joining us for the August 17th-22nd Main Salmon River Trip you are in for a special treat. For the first time in years, we will experience a 98% obscuration eclipse of the sun. This near total eclipse should begin at around 10:12 (MST) max-out at around 11:30 and continue through till around 12:50PM. This unique event will be witnessed by millions of people across the western hemisphere, not to mention many non-human species as well! The Umbral Cone or shadow will hit earth somewhere in the mid-pacific and begin its race across the planet, breaking the sound barrier with its speed. This trip runs close enough to that Umbral-shadow so folks will have a front-row seat to a once-in-a-lifetime show! We will of course be providing fashionable eclipse glasses to protect everyone’s eyesight from the event.
