Re: Dog problem near Laurel Falls and Morland

I have hiked that portion of the trail, but not this spring.  I went 
through in December and did not have any problems..

Also at Hampton, TN which is the town you get to by following the blue 
blaze trail instead of hiking over Pond Mountain.  The store is called 
Brown's Grocery and Hardware, and in addition Mr. Brown has a place where 
hikers can spend the night and clean up.  

I will be up there in mid may and I will check out the dog problem and 
post more information.  I have been attacked by dogs about 10 miles south 
of Moreland Shelter, but I had both red pepper spray and a gun with me 
and was able to take care of the problem.
