3 canoes on lake cole

Did someone say ADK Rambler?

Dear Journal,

I can’t wait for climbing tomorrow.  We will be climbing for the next two days.  Most of use have never climbed before, but are excited to try something new.  We have spent the past week on (or in) the water and are ready to dry out…

We just got back from canoeing and the lakes were spectacular.  We started out at Fallsby Clear Pond and navigated our way around the area.  I didn’t expect the portaging to be so difficult, but in the end it was very rewarding.  It’s amazing to think that we carried everything we need (including our canoes) from one lake to the next.

With all this rain, the flies & mosquitoes can be pretty intense at times.  My rain jacket with high socks seem to do the trick.  Happy 4th of July.  I hope we see some fireworks.  I can’t wait to develop my photos.




Zach eigenbrodt

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.
