Very spiritual to see the awe of the corona, then the instant the sun peeks out its the whitest light you'll ever see.

We had perfect cloudless skies.
I went up to Redmond, OR to check it out and I can't echo your sentiments any louder. That moment when it goes total and you see the diamond ring is unreal. I experienced a joy that I haven't had since I was a kid. It was definitely worth all the headaches and hassles for that small amount of time. In 2023 there is an annular that goes through Nevada, although north of Las Vegas. It's not the same thing as a total, but it looks like it could be pretty awesome to see at maybe Great Basin.
