Take Highway 22 east out of Salem. About 30 to 40 minutes you'll pass through a small town called "Gates." Just two miles further east turn into a small park and follower footpath down to river.
The river provided a great location to shoot the eclipse with a nice foreground, no other folks around. Have to go back and just shoot along the river.
Along the North Santiam River just off Highway 22 in Oregon. About a half mile hike down to the river through a beautiful, quiet forest.
