Merchant's Millpond (North Carolina)

Last summer Rebecca and I discovered a true gem - Merchant's Millpond within the Great Dismal Swamp. It's an eerie, enchanted atmosphere that seems unique anywhere I've ever been.

This time around, we invited four friends along for the adventure down Bennett's Creek.

The water level was down significantly, but luckily we planned the trip early enough in the season to avoid the mosquitos that must love the slow, stagnant flow of the creek.
