Last night barrels and buckets full of rain fell in Glenwood, WA and in much of the northwest. In spite of flooded foundations and water over the roadway, it all looks beautiful when the sun pops out and a rainbow shines.
This last rainbow is one from Friday, October 20 along Highway 141 near White Salmon, Washington.
YES IT WAS WORTH THE TRIP!!! Seriously phenomenal!!! We had 1 min 27 seconds totality in Shaniko, Oregon. Not enough but incredible. The sky was violet, the corona alive. My daughter and her friend danced for joy and I am so happy I could share this with them. In fact if it were not for them I might not have come down here. I even managed to get a few shots :).
These are snapshots of the photos from my big camera, taken with my phone of the back of my camera. Can we have a do over please? 😀😀😀⭐️

In hindsite, I am not certain that was quite the case, but it was still a lovely night. Many people were out on the roads last night flocking to favorite locations in hopes of getting “the shot” or seeing what may for some of us be a once in a lifetime experience.
Having watched several lunar eclipses over the years, still it was really different seeing the moon become eclipsed as it was rising over distant hills as the sun set and twilight came on.
Here are a few images, each with its own time stamp. Hope you enjoy!
Today sis Nora and I took ourselves out to dinner at Shary’s restaurant in Hood River after her appointment across the street getting shots to help her poor arthritic knees. She loved the food, and just doing something different and rare for her. When we came out of the restaurant in a rainstorm, this view greeted us and we forgot all about rain in the face.
The most important things in life really are free, and seeing my sis having fun was a big one.
