JACKSON, Wyoming — People are preparing to swarm our neighboring states for the best view of a total eclipse of the sun.
August 21st will be the last total solar eclipse in our area of our lifetime, and the best place to see it will be in the north.
Tiny towns throughout Idaho and Wyoming are preparing for hordes of crowds that whole weekend.
Extra park rangers are coming in for Grand Teton and Jackson Hole. They are ordering extra Port-a-Potties.
And if you can’t find lodging, you can rent lawn space in towns like Rexburg and Rigby.
