In this video we continue searching for the perfect location to watch the solar eclipse of 2017. We drive from Stone Mountain Park, in Georgia into Tennessee. I camp for one night at Marion County Park, near Chattanooga, Tennessee, by the Georgia state line. We sample some outstanding wines and delicious pizza at Look Out Winery. On the next day we drive through Tennessee, passing by Nashville, eventually stopping at Hopkinsville, Kentucky. We found the perfect place to watch the eclipse that afternoon, in the Kentucky Lakes area.
