That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Can anybody recommend a good trail to backpack/camp in LBL? I would like to head to that end of the state for the pending eclipse.

Jump onto the North/South Trail pretty much anywhere.  The areas near KY Lake would probably be best for eclipse viewing.

We rented a 10 x 10 viewing site in Hopkinsville. Hoping the weather will cooperate.   :)

I've been wondering if anybody here was heading down for the eclipse. Thought about starting a thread even. Bazinga I'm surprised you are heading to Eclipseville with 300k-400k of your closest friends!

You gotta go where the viewing is best.  We've been planning for a few years.   Even bought a special camera filter to take pics.   :D

Gonna be another total eclipse in April of 2024 north of Louisville (Totality in Vincennes In).

Just so people know there is a wide swath where this will be viewable, and you will be able to pull over just about anywhere along the vector of the eclipse to see the total eclipse.
