Seek Your Adventure!

We believe adventure is everywhere... whether it's walking the beach for rocks, paddleboarding an inland lake, or hammocking along the North Country Trail.

Whatever it may be, adventure is a feeling, a state of mind that varies from person to person. There can be many kinds or intensities of adventure–you need not go far, take extreme risks, or have a set agenda. Sometimes the best adventures can be found in our own backyard—spontaneous and unexpected.
When we venture out with new eyes to experience the landscape of our everyday lives, something good is bound to happen.

So let's celebrate that spirit of small-scale adventure when we explore what's right outside our door...
Go on, get out there and Seek Your Adventure!
