Got Cabin Fever?

Spring fever... cabin fever... Call it what you will — I'm feeling it!

We've had a fantastic winter season, but lately we've had a lot of warm temperatures and rain, usually followed by plummeting temperatures and snow. It's making me stir crazy! 

I'm ready for flip flops and tank tops, hikes and beach days. But in the mean time, I'll make the best of what I have.

Winter Events

 

 

This year, I made a resolution to stay home more. 

Well, that went out the window fast! There are just way too many great events going on to sit at home and miss out. There is a little something for everyone. I can head out with a few of my friends, have a "day date" with my husband, or head out with the family to one of the many awesome family-friendly events. Why would I want to stay in and miss out!? Here are some upcoming not-to-miss events!

From prepping the mountain to snow making, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to get Oak Mountain ready for their winter season.

For Pete’s Sake – a long hike back to Pete’s Hill

One of the hardest things about trying to find hiking partners, is finding ones who have days off during the week. This week in particular I couldn't talk anyone into taking the day off to join in on this interesting adventure, so I would go it alone. I don't typically hike solo, but once in a while it can be quite freeing.

On an important not when I do hike by myself I always leave an itinerary with someone at home which includes a detailed map of where I will be — in fact, I also do the same when I hike in a group.

Cats vs Dogs: 5 times dogs get the win

Cat vs. Dog

You know how they say there are dog people and there are cat people? 

I am a cat person. Cats are cuddly, cute, and natural heating pads on a cold fall evening. They are smart, sassy, and independent — not unlike my favorite people. 

However, I have to admit I am slowly becoming a dog person - by default. You can't really blame me. It's simply a hazard of living the mountain life.

Adirondack Firetowers

We all have fears. Some people are scared of spiders (myself included), some people are scared of snakes, or clowns, or dogs, or small spaces. And some people are scared of heights. If you fall into this category, this may not be for you! But, if you're looking to cure your acrophobia, think about taking on the Fire Towers of the Adirondacks!

Birding & Paddling Fishing Brook

 

A lovely new area has been opened to the public for paddling and fishing in the Town of Long Lake. County Line Flow and Fishing Brook can both be paddled, and fishing is allowed from the shoreline of Fishing Brook. There are two put-in locations — one on the southeastern edge of County Line Flow and one at a bridge over Fishing Brook to the west of County Line Flow. I opted to put my boat in by the bridge over Fishing Brook.
