The best scenic spots for the first annular solar eclipse in the U.S. since 2012, from Oregon to Texas
Beginning in Oregon at 9:13 a.m. PDT and ending in Texas at 12:03 p.m. CDT, the path of the solar eclipse will cross over a dozen U.S. national parks, national monuments and other beautiful spots, including Oregon’s Crater Lake, Utah’s Bryce Canyon and Arizona’s Monument Valley (which will be closed for eclipse). It’s a great excuse to travel — and as a bonus many of the best viewing locations are also International Dark Sky Parks.
Packed with maps, tips and little-known locations, it’s everything you need to start planning your own trip to see the ‘ring of fire’.
