Adirondack Day Hiker
The Adirondack Day hikers are off to a great start! Both trails (yesterdays and todays) have started off fairly easy, through beautiful terrain and then gotten a lot harder in the last mile for a good push for each group member. Yesterday they did Ampersand Mountain, near Saranac Lake and today they did Mount Van Hovenburg. The campsite has been great and the group has been entertaining themselves with songs, stories and friendly chatter throughout each hike. Everyone is very pumped about tackling Algonquin tomorrow, their hardest hike to date!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born and raised in Wisconsin, Zach couldn't keep himself out of the woods when growing up. He started working at a Northern Wisconsin YMCA Camp as a wilderness trip leader while in college and fell in love with getting kids into nature. The smiles on kids faces after returning from a once in a life time wilderness experience is why he is here today. Zach brought his talents to Frost Valley YMCA, in 2014, when he started as the Trips Coordinator and soon was promoted to Adventure Director. Zach loves all forms of Wilderness exploration, though some would say his heart lies most with canoeing.
