Making the Most out of Summer in Maine

Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

I am reflecting on how to take advantage of the rest of the Maine Summer. Angus King recently said "Summer lingers, but cool mornings are a portent. Remember, however, September is our secret".  If you are not following Senator King on Instagram, you should consider doing so- He rides his Harley around the state and … Continue reading Don’t Let Your Maine Summer Slip Away

31 Nights Out Challenge – Camping in Maine

In 2015 I saw a post that a friend had shared about a challenge to spend 31 nights outside between Memorial Day and Labor Day (without quitting your job).  I love a good challenge and we already had a handful of trips planned already so I figured why not?!  The summer turned into a constant … Continue reading 31 Nights Out Challenge – Camping in Maine

Beech Hill Preserve – Hike for Beginners

Wherever you live, it's important to find your local hikes.  Living in Maine, the definition of local tends to stretch more than it might in other areas.  For me, local is anything that I can access within an hour's drive, because some days you don't have much time but the mountains are calling and your … Continue reading Beech Hill Preserve – Hike for Beginners

The Traveler Loop – Baxter State Park

Hey! It's Willow. Baxter State Park, like Acadia National Park, is a treasure of the state of Maine.

What’s In Your Pack? Outdoor Gear – Beyond the Basics

Hiking and backpacking gear is one of my favorite things.  Seriously.  When I had to spend a big chunk of money recently on a non-hiking purchase, I grumbled as the woman behind the counter rang me up.  She asked what was wrong and I said “Oh, I was just thinking about how much hiking gear … Continue reading What’s In Your Pack?
