We zoomed down from Stanley, past Mount Borah and through Mackay on our eclipse location scouting trip. While gassing up the contrast between the brightly lit white wall and dark mountains in the background caught my eye. Shoot when the light is right! I think the area around Mackay, especially the mountains of the Lost River Range afford the best location to see the eclipse in Idaho. I would prefer to hike into the mountains and view the eclipse from a summit. If you get high enough it may be possible to view the moon’s shadow racing over the Earth. If we opt for this we will head into the mountains near Mackay.
