The traffic on the way to Dawson Springs was not too bad because people trickled into the area over a few days. However, once it was over, it took two hours just for the main road in Dawson Springs to clear out (because many went to Pennyrile State Park to observe the event). Hours after the event while we were traveling home (around 7 pm), we noticed the Pennyrile Parkway from Hopkinsville was still in a complete traffic jam with cars barely moving. Many of the smaller roads and gas stations in Muhlenberg County were also clogged up because the travelers' GPS systems were taking them on alternate routes, which ended up being on tiny 2-lane roads. I was thankful we were only backed up for about 5-10 minutes on our way home.

Below is a photo of the traffic on our way home on the Western Kentucky Parkway.
We had such a great day! Hoping this will be a special day the boys will remember forever!!!
