      [Book Giveaway] Color Remote: Bushwhacking the Adirondack Mountains When I hike in the American West, I casually reach for one of my cameras and take photos pretty much where I’m standing. The West is quite photogenic, and snapping beautiful images is a cinch, especially because it’s sunny nearly every day.   I have had the recent pleasure of receiving an advanced copy of Alan Via’s new book “Doghiker: Great hikes with dogs from the Adirondacks through the Catskills”. I had been looking forward to this as Alan had invited me to share some of my pictures of Emma, our 22lb Pom-mix who got quite a reputation for trotting the NH48 last decade.

    Types of Camping in the Adirondacks Island Camping. Island camping is just one of the many ways to experience the richness of all that the Adirondack Mountains have to offer. Sail along the beautiful shoreline and fall asleep to the quiet lap of waves. The Saranac Lake Islands in the Adirondack provide secluded and peaceful island campsites.   In time for planning those summer reads and outdoor activities, here is a list of the current ten best-selling Adirondack books according to 1 – 50 Hikes in the Adirondacks: Short Walks, Day Trips, and Backpacks Throughout the Park, Fourth Edition by Barbara McMartin (May ). 2 – At the Mercy of the Mountains: True Stories of Survival and .

    Hiking in the Adirondack High Peaks is for adventurous souls. Most of the hikes include elevation gains and losses over 2, feet, and bouldering (rock scrambling) to reach the summits.

Like a patchwork quilt, the Adirondacks are made up of twelve distinct regional destinations, each offering their own brand of Adirondack adventure. From the endless canoeing and kayaking in the Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake regions, to the extensive hiking trails of the High Peaks Wilderness in the Lake Placid Region - discover an area as.
