One of America’s most recognized climbing area, Oregon’s Smith Rock found itself smack in the path of totality this week.

That thin band across the country, in which the moon completely blocked the sun, drew thousands of eclipse chasers. Here is a story behind Ted Hesser and Andrew Studer capturing their iconic images of the eclipse at Smith Rock. A ob well done hoping to capture a once-in-a-lifetime image for a shoot sponsored by Columbia Sportswear and Goal Zero.
