Average Sunshine in Salem Oregon for August;
Partly Sunny 9.
Then again, Eastern Oregon is ripe for thunderstorms at 5:20 in the afternoon.
Those that can find parking at Painted Hills should enjoy. I bet August 21st will be its busiest day ever.
The John Day would be too low for normal running.
But there are short stretches near Service Creek where people play in whatever small raft with the kids catching as many bass as possible. While not perfectly under the totality path its only 10 seconds less at one minute 50 seconds.
