Mar. 31, 2017
When visiting the Adirondacks, your itinerary is likely chockablock of fantastic adventures and gastronomic pleasures; perhaps you are planning on conquering your 46th peak or exploring New York natural history or maybe you are looking only to retreat from the every day and renew your spirit by waking up to room service instead of an alarm clock. What you probably don't have on your itinerary is a night at the movies; but on your next visit to Lake Placid, you might want to reconsider.

Adirondacks for Elephants
Feb. 14, 2017
If there is one thing I'll happily never get used to, it is the feeling that accompanies you down the road less traveled. It is a feeling of curiosity and discovery, that can't quite be explained.

For hundreds of years, explorers and day-travelers alike have explored the Adirondacks, and I expect nearly all can cite an addiction to feeling dwarfed by nature as the chief inspiration. It certainly was mine when I reached out to my neighbor, noted Adirondack naturalist Ed Kanze, in search of adventure.
