Thank you, Corvallis, for providing such a nice place for us out-of-towners to visit and see the eclipse. I so much enjoyed your pleasant town — the woodlands and river along Crystal Lake Sports Fields, the many colorful wildflowers here and there, the leafy tree canopies over the streets, the lovely old buildings of the campus, free buses, leisurely Sunday bicyclists, a healthy and authentic downtown, lovely summer weather, ripe blackberries to be picked, and many friendly and helpful people — at the visitors center, managing the campground, working at the library, driving the buses, and everywhere else. Thank you especially to Park & Rec for providing and managing the campground and facilities. A job well done.
