2017 Eclipse Information for Idaho
As the Moon's shadow crosses into Idaho over the Snake River, the eclipse will traverse over mountainous terrain. Idaho will be a desirable state to view the eclipse because of good weather prospects. The low population density should keep the roads reasonably clear and there are many scenic vantage points in Idaho.
The far western portion of the state inside the path of total solar eclipse and the eastern part of the state in the Snake River valley by Idaho Falls and Rexburg have very good prospects for clear skies plus a decent road network to relocate if it comes to dodging clouds.
Mountaintop locations such as the top of the Sun Valley gondola (51 seconds of totality) will offer the spectacle of the adjacent mountains changing illumination quickly as the Moon's shadow races across at 2,800 miles per hour!
