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 […]

Maiden’s Cliff

Jess and I decided to check out some trails in the Midcoast Area in our extended fall season. Maiden’s Cliff in Camden, Maine was a great quick-ish hike, perfect for beginners and also very pet friendly! We did a loop – to get the most miles in, but there’s many variables of this hike, and all take you to the same stunning view! Parking for […]

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 […]

Beech Cliffs to Beech Mountain

Hey! It’s DD. Jess, Nick and I wanted to do something off the Main Island in Acadia (to avoid tourists in peak season), with a bit of a challenge and some views. We decided on Beech Cliffs to Beech Mountain, in Southwest Harbor! We parked at Echo Beach, which you need a park pass for, but we hit the trailhead right off. You must get […]

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 […]

Borestone Mountain

Hey it’s DD! It was a beautiful late spring day in April and I decided to tackle a mountain that had been on my list FORRR-EVVV-ERRR – Borestone Mountain!  Borestone is a mountain it seems like everyone that has grown up in Maine has a story about, so it had been on my mind for years. We didn’t want to spend the whole day hiking, […]

Cannon Mountain in the Winter

DD’s friend Kaylie posted a facebook status looking for partners to adventure with her this weekend, and of course we were all over it! Her original plan was Tecumseh, which is a great 4,000 footer, but we had been talking about bagging Cannon Mountain in the winter, and she was game. Our mutual friend Ashley and of course Jess were also interested so we made […]

Mount Waumbek to Starr King Summit

Hey! It’s DD. We hiked the LONGEST 2.6  miles (up) of our LIVES on this mountain up Mount Waumbek to Starr King  – but it was worth it. (Isn’t it always?) Our friend Jess S. joined us for this hike. She recently geared up and bought some gaiters and microspikes, so this was her first BIG winter hike where any winter gear was necessary. Fortunately, […]

Champlain Mountain Hike

It was a beautiful bluebird day when Jess, DD and Willow set off to Acadia National Park to hike Champlain Mountain. The initial plan was to hike in the White Mountains and bag another winter 4,000 footer, but the weather down south was iffy. So we opted for a lighter day in Acadia, which we consider our backyard. Bonus, we can “sleep in,” meaning we […]

Mount Tecumseh

DD & Willow here!  You all know by now that Willow adores winter.  She is the one who exclaims with glee every time the white stuff is falling and love to spread her love of winter with others whenever possible, or at the very least, annoy those around her who hate winter with her excitement. She was more than happy to take DD up Mount […]

Sargent Mountain

It was a beautiful day, to begin with. We’ve had some AMAZING weather here in Maine this season. Literally perfect. DD and Willow needed a little outdoor therapy – and we’re lucky enough to live oh so close to Acadia National Park – so we decided to take advantage of our beautiful backyard. This was also a good opportunity for DD to begin her #DDs35for35 […]
