Jordan Pond, Acadia Hike #4

Jordan Pond, Acadia Hike #4

  • by Garrett Tershel

Jordan Pond is a quiet hike around a pond.  Although this looks like it might be much the same as all the other hikes we did it had its own special charm.  Also giving the kids a break from the strain of the more difficult hikes while learning a little more about the area, priceless.

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

Bar Harbor, Low Tide Hike #2

  • by Garrett Tershel

This is not a hike that is listed on the REI Trails app but it was a great walk and a very educational day.  The tide in Maine ranges almost 12ft from high tide to low tide.  During low tide great tide pools are created and available to explore.  We highly recommend the day walking along the shore of Bar Harbor.

Acadia National Park

The drive north to Acadia National Park in early October was one of the most magnificent. We spent two weeks in Maine and everyday the colors changed and the contrast of the trees, the sky, the land and the water seemed to only get better and better.

Ahhh, Vermont!

Ahhh, Vermont!

  • by Garrett Tershel

Sometimes I am so focused on a task that is in front of me I am not prepared to enjoy the experience. In November, I was still learning to pull a trailer and had had a couple of long drives in Ohio and New York. I just wanted to get to my next destination. I was ready for the drive but I wish I knew what we were going to see. Vermont was an awesome blur!

Fall into Autumn

Fall into Autumn

  • by desiertog

Towards the end of summer, when crowds have died down and kids have gone back to school, I have always had the urge to travel. I would look up places to go and, invariably, I would be drawn to color drives; drives to look at the trees changing colors. Fall is my season...

A Thousand Trails to Maine

A Thousand Trails to Maine

  • by desiertog

We could hear water so decided to walk into the woods a little. We ended up finding a little lake and little waterfalls. We spent maybe an hour and a half exploring. If we had packed water shoes and a lunch we would have spent much more time there. We came to find it was called Schroon Lake.
