After a six hour drive from northern Idaho with my wife and 3 of our kids, we found a perfect spot at the Holmes farm just south of Cascade. My 13 year old son Benjy snapped this beauty just a few seconds after 2nd contact. It was his second total eclipse, but he was only 2 years old at the last one in Turkey.
