Gunner Pool

Gunner Pool in Arkansas.  It’s a dammed up creek in the Ozark National Forest (Gunner Pool campground).  It always seems to have crystal-clear water (at least in fall/winter/spring).   The depth was only 13 ft, temp was 41 degrees, but the vis was about 30 ft. 

Anyway, cool little unique location, but shallow.

    Dove Gunner Pool again on 1/25:
    Depth: 13 ft.
    Water temp: 39 degrees
    Vis: 30 ft.

    Gunner Pool was completely frozen over with 1/4 to 1/2 inches of ice, so my first dive under the ice, even though I didn’t exactly need a chainsaw to cut through it. But I need have to tie a rope to my 5lb dive weight and hammer it over and over again to break it up. Surfaced a couple of times using the “Ice Station Zebra” method.
