I certainly hope so. I don't really have any plans yet though. Or even any idea where along the path I want to aim for.
That idea of the observation tower atop Clingman’s Dome is interesting if (IF!) the weather cooperates.
It is actually the worst weather spot along the entire track across the US as far as cloud cover goes. And it is off the center of the path so you only get 1 minute 17 seconds of totality.
But as the third highest point in the Appalachian Mountains you will be able to see for miles, so you will be able to see the shadow of the eclipse spot rushing up to you as totality begins, and see the shadow rushing away from you after totality ends. That is something that eclipse watchers on level ground won't be able to see.
