Paddling the Finger Lakes

Planning your summer trip? Something that involves paddling in a beautiful part of the country? Maybe give the
Smokies a try. In this article from GORP, T.
Edward Nickens tackles the “Finger Lakes of the South,” the manmade reservoirs that span across a million acres of
mountainous forests between Asheville, North Carolina, and Knoxville, Tennessee.

The trip sounds killer and may just make it on my summer itinerary. You paddle during the day along glassy lakes and
stay at night in comfy log cabins. Maybe fish for your dinner and kick back next to a blazing fire. There are far worse
ways to whiile away a string of summer nights.
