You may be right about the Painted Hills. I am going in May and will do some reconnoitering.

You can still get a 2 minute view of the total eclipse even if you're 1/3rd of the way to Maupin from the bridge.
The eclipse, (partial phases included), is about 2 1/2 hours long from any given location.

Yup, me to. I contacted BLM in Casper and they are already making plans for the crowds. According to them Casper will be charging $125 for camping. I plan to be on BLM land in a more remote area.

Did you notice anyone upping their fees?

I suspect that NP Concessionaires would not be allowed to do this, but I don't know that.

No they didn't raise fees at all but they were sold out within an hour or less. We had to book back in April I think. Signal Mountain Lodge.
