Where we are made a difference:
OUR LOCATION: 44.8198°N – 119.7572°W
Located right on the John Day River, with 160 acres three miles East of Spray, Oregon, Right Lane Ranch was in a prime location for the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse, being in the Path of Totality.
On August 21st, 2017, a partial eclipse began at 9:08 AM PST – while at 10:21AM PST, the sun was totally blocked by the moon for 1 minutes 52 seconds – and the partial eclipse ended at 11:43 AM PST.
Having never seen a Total Solar Eclipse it wouldn't surprise me if we made early plans to travel and see the one in 2024 from somewhere in Texas or even Mexico. It was spectacular! The great thing about our event was that we weren't responsible for the finale, being the Total Eclipse, and mother nature did it's thing and surely delivered.
The Ranch offered unobstructed views from all RV sites, camping sites and all parking sites. Our camping sites had walking access to the John Day River.
How was the Weather?
It couldn't have gone better weather wise leading up to event for star gazers and the day of the event was perfect. The temperature was more than bearable, no clouds in the sky and from moon up to moon down there was no obstruction.
What was is like for Travel & Fuel?
There were plenty of nervous travelers coming from all over the world due to media hype expecting large amounts of traffic from every direction, but as it turns out not one of our guests had trouble on their way to Right Lane Ranch. There was an expected increase in traffic on people's way home, but everyone made it home much sooner than they had originally thought without having to take desperate measures for fuel, water or other supplies.
