PENDLETON — Teens and adults are invited on the trip of a lifetime as Pendleton Parks & Recreation is planning a Total Solar Eclipse Road Trip.
The group will pile into the vehicle on the morning of Monday, Aug. 21 and head out at 7 a.m. from the Pendleton Recreation Center. Driving south to a viewing point in the path of totality, participants will receive special viewing glasses. The trip itinerary will include other stops, possibly the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. The estimated time of return is 5 p.m.
Due to limited resources in the small communities along the path of totality, participants need to bring their own food and beverages. Seating is limited and registrations will be accepted until full — no later than Wednesday, Aug. 16. The cost is $50 per person.
To register, visit www.pendletonparksandrec.com or stop by the parks office, 865 Tutuilla Road. For more information, call 541-276-8100.
