Hood River News invites readers to submit photos along with a short description.
Pam Sanchez sent in the first Eclipse Experience message, copied from Snapchat, at 11:48 a.m.: “Me and my girls watched the eclipse from our back porch in Mosier.”
Judy Hanson of Mt. Hood at 1:16 p.m. provided eclipse viewing photos as well as several depicting the solar phenomenon.
Jeremy Davis: “Space and science nerds unite … viewing the solar eclipse with the kiddos in our Hood River cul-de-sac with some of our neighbors.”
Rountree Rouse: “We went to Spray this morning and I managed to get this shot. Handheld with my Nikon and 400VR lens. Luck.”
What was your eclipse experience?

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue
Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
