The Ninja Librarian is in Oregon, watching the eclipse.
As a treat while you wait for our return, a few photos of the Eastern Oregon landscape, from earlier trips.
I tend to think of eastern Oregon as fairly flat--a rolling lava field much like eastern Washington (which is also not really that way--that's just what you see from I90). And it can be.
|Oregon looking prairie-like aside from the volcanic artifact that is Fort Rock.|
But an awful lot of it is more like this. Still volcanic, but not so flat.

Oregon can also look like this:
|John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, Painted Hills|
Interesting contrasts between the eroding hills, the volcanic butte behind, and the irrigated valley between!
|We'll be looking for places more like what's behind the Painted Hills, for the best view of the eclipse!|
And finally, Eastern Oregon can also look like this.
See you in a few days!
