Summit Eclipse

Mountaineers witness totality of the 2017 eclipse on the highest mountain in its path, 13,809′ Gannett Peak. Deep in the Wind River Range of Wyoming, reaching the summit requires two days of backpacking, a 12+ hour climb day, and crossing two glaciers.

This photo is a finalist in the American Experience category of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
