Constantly inspired by the endless beauty of the Adirondack Park, we are always discovering new facets of the within and around the blue line that motivate us to get out and explore it. We originally designed this website to share our stories, laughs, and experiences and put a personal touch on making the most of the Adirondacks. By documenting our discoveries through photos, videos, and personalized posts, we hoped that our website and social media channels would not only act as an educational and informational resource, but also as an entertaining way to get a unique view on all that the Adirondack Park has to offer. Today, our travel site is an established brand in the region and we strive to continue evolving; from expanding our product line and offering unique marketing services to sharing personal adventures and finding ways to give back to the local communities.
Growing up in the Adirondacks, specifically in the small town of Wilmington near the Olympic Village of Lake Placid, I learned early on to appreciate the uniqueness of my hometown. Waking up to thick forests and old mountains outside of my window was a view that never got old. As a kid right on through high school, almost every winter weekend was spent skiing, and later instructing, at Whiteface Mountain and summers were spent boating and camping. While attending Clarkson University, I spent many weekends re-visiting the region to explore new places and expose friends to outdoor adventures like hiking in the High Peaks. I've had the opportunity to travel to some beautiful places both outside and around the USA, including the Canadian Rockies, Iceland, New Zealand, and the Virgin Islands, but I have to say the Adirondack Park rivals many places as a top destination in terms of its unique natural setting.
Summers spent camping in the Adirondacks with my family are some of my fondest childhood memories. Those early Adirondack explorations definitely influenced the love of hiking, kayaking, and all things outdoors that I have now! The natural beauty of the mountains piqued my interest in diversity and biological sciences, helping inspire me to pursue a degree in environmental science at Clarkson University (where I met Evan!), on the outskirts of the Adirondack Park. My passion for the environment lead Evan and I to Syracuse, where I earned my masters degree at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and have continued building my career working for an environmental consulting firm. After a full week of working, I always look forward to weekends spent camping out under the stars or breaking trails after a fresh snowfall.Connect with me: Instagram | LinkedIn
We'll speak on behalf of Lucy since she's busy sleeping on the bed at the moment. Lucy joined our family/team in September 2016. She's a German Shepherd Mix and has quite a personality. She loves snow, water, playing, and just being outdoors in general. We adopted her from Helping Hounds in Syracuse, NY and since she's become a huge part of our daily life and outdoor adventures around the New York State, the Adirondacks, and beyond. Per usual we will be taking lots of photos when we are out and about, so be sure to check out her profile on Instagram - @lucytheadk9
