Playground Hopping

Have you been as stir crazy this year as I have been? It seemed like the cold weather just didn't want to let go. Well, now that the  snow is gone (and hopefully we won't see any more) all I can think about is how nice it will be to get out of the house! I love going for walks or bike rides with my kids, or even taking a nice leisurely drive.

Whitewater adventure, my way

As a child I loved to read adventure stories. Climbing Everest, exploring remote jungles, and searching for the North Pole sounded very exciting.

But as I grew up, reality intruded. I was on the clumsy side, and I really shouldn't be staking my life on upper body strength. I'm miserable in humidity, and jungles are very humid. And those arctic explorers... couldn't bathe very often.

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!

Give the Adirondacks

Christmas is just around the corner, and while we sit here and cross our fingers, pray and do snow dances in hopes of a good winter, it's never too early to think about summer. Maybe your family is planning a vacation, or you know someone who would love to take a trip to the Adirondacks. This year, why not give the gift of an Adirondack Experience?!

Getting Oak Mountain Winter Ready

For most people, skiing isn't something that crosses their minds until the temperatures drop or those first few snowflakes fly. At Oak Mountain, skiing is a year-round thought. 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.

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!

Fall Festivals

A notable temperature shift has been happening over the last couple of weeks, making many people realize summer is coming to an end! While we may be packing away the beach chairs and getting ready to head back to school, paddling or hiking are fun ways to take in the ever-changing fall foliage, or perhaps you'd enjoy warming up next to a fall campfire. There is still plenty to do in the Adirondacks! We love this season, and we celebrate it the way all good Adirondackers should — with great fun and good food while surrounded by gorgeous foliage!

Number Four and Stillwater: Two Tower Peaks (Kinda)

By now, most locals - and I'd guess many visitors to the heart of the Adirondacks  - have heard the hubbub about the Stillwater Fire Tower  being open the public.  Corenne and I were just as excited to hear about the July 3rd opening as everyone else. We quickly added the fire tower on our must-see list.

Camping With the Family (Dog Included)

My family hike into Spruce Lake

I'm not much for roughing it in the great outdoors. My idea of a vacation is a nice plush hotel with a big comfy bed, room service, and maybe, if I'm lucky, a swim-up bar. So when my fiancé told me his brother, who was coming home for our wedding, wanted the whole family to go camping, I got a knot in the pit of my stomach. Not only did he want to camp, he wanted to hike to camp, which meant no beds, no bathrooms, no cell service, and definitely no room service!
