Canoeing in Gourley Ponds

There are four ponds in Cades Cove (Methodist Church Pond, Gum Swamp and two Gourley Ponds).  This is the is the first Gourley Pond.  I had never canoed it and thought I might as well!  Beautiful day!

Pulling a pulk in the Smokies

Pulling a pulk on the AT in January of 2011.  Nelson Fields and I pulked on Roan Mountain (January) and Jeff Meyer and I went to Collins Gap in February.  I do not know why other people are not pulling pulks in the Smokies!
