These are terrible pictures taken as we drove by. Hopefully they sorta capture the huge amount of people. There were people camped here and in farmers' fields everywhere. They knew that the whole world, or at least all of California, would try to come here. It was in the absolute center of the totality and in the rain shadow of the Cascades so guaranteed to have clear skies. They were ready for us with plenty of camping and toilets, people selling t-shirts and snacks in town, businesses open even on day's they normally were closed and just general good cheer all around.
