Tumbledown Mountain

Tumbledown Mountain is a lengendary mountain, for many reasons. It provides many different experiences, depending on your approach. Our friend Jon “Mountain Man” Moyer mentioned it would be a great one for my DD’s 35 for 35, so I immediately added it to my list. Jess and I always have really good intentions, but it’s hard for me to get up in the am (I […]

Precipice Trail

Precipice Trail is one of our favorite trails in Acadia National Park. It provides a nice thrill in a short hike. It starts ascending almost immediately, and you encounter rungs and ladders. The view was totally worth it. We got a little confused when we hit a cave – it almost appears as thought you might climb over it, but then you can’t really see […]

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 showcases everything that our great state has to offer and […]

Tunk Mountain Hike

Hey! It’s DD. As you know I am working on hiking 35 mountains this year, and I am getting there, slowly. I had heard about Tunk Mountain for a while, and my friend Lindsey (who you probably remember from Borestone Mountain!) was totally down for the adventure. We decided to find the trailhead via Google Maps – bad plan. It took us to the ATV […]
