Brigham Young University hosted eclipse viewing on their campus. They did a great job. They opened several large grassy fields to the public. Parking was also free and near by. The event was well run with every amenity thought through and provided including lots of porta-potties. We also got lucky. The sky was clear and it was not very hot. Just 50 miles away in Idaho Falls, they experienced heavy smoke from forest fires. The wind was going the other way for us.
