Bike Riding By the Hudson

This was an exceptionally warm Columbus Day Weekend, which for me was a little bit of a bummer, I really like fall camping, and it just wasn't the same without sweatshirts & even mittens and hats.  But we made the best of it and had some extra summer fun with a bike ride. October 8,… Continue reading Bike Riding By the Hudson

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 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 Drove Up Whiteface

When you're single, and people tell you never do things alone because people will take advantage of you... it can be hard to have a life, especially when you're independent and thrive on spending time alone.  And it only took me until I was 28 to finally say screw it... and take off on a… Continue reading The Time I Drove Up Whiteface

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 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

The Time I Hiked Hunter Mountain

After hearing about the NE 115 we decided why stop at 46…let’s aim higher! Plus it offers us shorter options. Our first in the Catskills to tackle, Hunter Mountain, which is also on the Fire Tower Challenge list.  There path for most of the hike up was wide and easy to manage and follow.  There are limited… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Hunter Mountain

The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (The First Time)

I had to confront my sort-of fear of heights on this hike.  And let me tell you it was rough. Not to mention that when we started out on this hike there were signs plastered all over the trail register about the escaped convicts. That made things fun. June 27, 2015 The trail starts off… Continue reading The Time I Hiked Buck Mountain (The First Time)

The Time I *ALMOST* Solo-Hiked Up Killington

When my parents decided on a week long trip to Gifford Woods State Park so mountain biking could commence, I was thrilled that a solo-hike could be in my future.  It somehow made me feel better that my dad and brothers would be on the mountain at the same time as I was - just… Continue reading The Time I *ALMOST* Solo-Hiked Up Killington
