#4 – Do a Weekend Road Trip (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

I wasted no time when it came to starting this challenge. Day 1 and I was off to complete #4 of the #ThirtyBeforeThirty challenge - Do a weekend road trip. September 22-24, 2017 September 22, 2017 I arrived at Stokes Sate Forest just around 5 P.M.  The main office was closed, which caused a little… Continue reading #4 – Do a Weekend Road Trip (#ThirtyBeforeThirty)

The Time I Hiked Sunrise Mountain

After the trek up Cascade & Porter and my *obsession* with hiking began, I had big plans to hike the Appalachian Trail with my dog, which for some reason I wanted to name Bubba.  I'm a planner, but my follow through is often non-existent. So instead, I'll settle for a couple of miles on the… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Sunrise Mountain

The Time I Hiked Sleeping Beauty

Here's my problem.  I really like to start hiking challenges.  Fire Towers, 46 High Peaks, 115 North East, Lake George 12ster... the list continues. I've actually yet to finish one of these challenges though.  I really should probably focus on just ONE and figure it out. August 26, 2017 Sleeping Beauty is one of the… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Sleeping Beauty

The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (the second time)

Repeat hikes are cooler than they seem. You see... Nature is never the same - I think thats my favorite thing about GODS CREATION.  No photo of it can be captured exactly the same way twice. August 13, 2017 Anyways, since my goal is to hike the 12 mountains in Lake George that consist of… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (the second time)

The Time I Spent a Week at Lewey Lake

It has been well over 10 years since I've actually been on a real 7 day vacation.  And I am PSYCHED (yes I said that like the cheer) about this! July 9, 2017 Today is the maiden voyage of Edith Elantra (well... Edith Elantra Part 1 - for later trips she really transforms). My bike… Continue reading The Time I Spent a Week at Lewey Lake

The Time I Tried the 4-3-2-1 Challenge in One Week…

HA! I planned this out so well, spending hours over the brochure I sent away for from the Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce.  Somehow, I really thought that I was going to complete this challenge in one week.  10 hikes, 6 days ... how hard could that be? Let's just make it back to reality… Continue reading The Time I Tried the 4-3-2-1 Challenge in One Week…

The Time I Bushwhacked Record Hill

This was no easy feat. We chose the hardest, steepest route solely because we could walk to the attempted route from the camp. Except we didn’t know this was the hardest steepest route until our way back down… June 11, 2017 This trek started off simple. A simple stroll down a dirt road with great… Continue reading The Time I Bushwhacked Record Hill

The Time I went to Quechee Gorge

Well, my parents have this love for Vermont (okay... my dad has a love for Vermont, because Killington is there and Killington=Mountain Biking).  But they always talk about Quechee Gorge, and I've see it, but never hiked it. So while we were staying at Gifford Woods for a week, I asked to hike this! We… Continue reading The Time I went to Quechee Gorge

The Time I went to Thundering Falls

I love happening upon cool places.  You know... the times you just show up and find something really cool. August 3, 2016 That's how we came across Thundering Falls. I actually have no photos of the falls themselves, since it was pretty late in the day, and the lighting in by the falls was HORRIBLE.… Continue reading The Time I went to Thundering Falls

The Time I Hiked Giant Mountain

Over Memorial Day weekend my dad and I tackled Giant Mountain.  This was my 7th high peak (and my dad’s 3rd).  It was quite the challenge I’ll admit, as it was well into the upper 80s, even on the summit. May 28, 2016 We were camping at Schroon Lake for the weekend, and we left… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Giant Mountain
