A Gondola passes by on Brush Creek

This series of photos was taken from the shore of Brush Creek in Kansas City, Missouri.
The gondolier is owner/operator Chris Sperry who runs two gondolas there.

 The gondola approaches.

 Chris finished out his two boats with great attention to detail.

 A lot of custom-crafted wood went into each vessel.

I visited Chris at his operation in September of 2009 when I was there for the Kansas City Expedition down the Missouri River.
It was so great to see a guy take such pride in his operation, and he's not on a bad piece of water either.
