The sub-zero temperatures of late remind us of an Adirondack poem. “Yes, the weather here is wonderful, so I guess I’ll hang around. I could never leave the Adirondacks, because I’m frozen to the ground.” ❄️❄️❄️ . . . 📸 @rickg12986

@travelandleisure listed the Adirondacks as a top travel destination for 2019, and said the @wildcenter is a must see attraction. I visited the beautiful Adirondacks for the first time this past September and visiting the Wild Center was a big highlight of my trip! We saw two presentations (one on river otters and one on porcupines), went on the behind-the-scenes tour where we saw even more animals and learned about the environmental efficiency of the Wild Center, and of course did the treetop wild walk where I got caught in this spider web 😜 Hoping to go back to the Adirondacks and the Wild Center again soon! . #adirondacks #wildcenter #traveldestinations #2019 #travel #blog #vacation #travelblog #newyork #iloveny

We went wild on Monday! As we were walking down to the lookout she explained (through song) that 1 she wanted to be a biologist and 2 that unicorns were obviously near because the lake was not fully frozen and only a unicorn can make that happen. #sing #outside #wildcenter

If heat affects the motion of molecules than 2018 was record hot, year, because I haven’t stopped moving. Looking back on this year I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished. The absolute hardest thing for me to do is slow down and take breaks. That will be my 2019 goal. #greennewdeal #actonclimate #wildcenter #putapriceonit #leadonclimate

This experience is worth a trip to Adirondacks for ❤️ iForest is the brainchild of British composer Pete M. Wyer and features the place-based musical composition “I Walk Towards Myself,” created by Wyer for this specific space and land in the Adirondack forest. The composition features voices from members of The Crossing, the renowned Philadelphia-based chamber choir, which are broadcast via twenty four hidden speakers in the surrounding woods. Walk along iForest’s path and take in the music and sounds of “I Walk Towards Myself.” With each step, evoke a new feeling, revel in a new sound, or listen to a new voice. The beauty of the iForest experience is that it morphs and changes not only with each step, but each shift in weather, season, and day. Simply magical ❤️ #wildcenter #adirondacks #tupperlake #iforest #magical #worththetrip #nature #natureishealing

I haven’t posted anything from @mandiedandy and my #ADK Thanksgiving trip because it’s a bit of a sore subject - we planned to knock out another high peak but weren’t prepared for just how cold it was. We originally planned on climbing on Thanksgiving Day, but we woke up that morning to single digit temperatures in Keene. We decided to kick around Placid for the day hitting the few shops that were actually open and enjoy some time relaxing by the fireplace at The Snow Goose, where we were staying. We tried to #optoutside on Black Friday instead but we hit the trail at 8AM and it was -2 degrees. Base layers weren’t cutting it. Sometimes smart hiking is knowing when to turn around. We took our time driving home and stopped at @wildcenter and @fccbrewery. Still an awesome trip.

Learning so freaking much. I came to Hustle & Flow hoping for the best, not 100% sure what it would be like. Day One down and I know the coming was the best decision I’ve made in 2018 for myself and my business. I’m blown away by @thehontourage and I can’t wait to start hustling for real. Pictured above ⬆️ One of my main reasons for knowing I need to kick it in gear and go get it!

Once snow starts to fall, we can get a secret glimpse into the life of wild animals. The picture below was taken on a railing next to some of our ambassador birds' enclosures. Can you guess who the curious visitor was from the prints they left behind? #wildlifeinvestigator

Ventured to the Adirondacks to talk data and climate literacy with a great bunch of science educators. It’s not every meeting where you get to cross a suspension bridge into a giant tree and stand in a huge bird nest with panoramic snowy mountain views. #gmri #wildcenter #datanerds

I arrived in Lake Placid on a fittingly snowy Saturday to talk about diversity and inclusion in travel, not knowing what to expect from a region that I had never visited. I left Tupper Lake the next day having met a diverse, ambitious, progressive, and passionate cross-section of the community, who are ready to welcome visitors of all backgrounds to the Adirondacks. The North Country is more than stunning nature... there is culture, art, history, food, and a wonderful community. Thank you Adirondack Foundation, Wild Center, and I Love NY for being such gracious hosts, and of course Travel Unity for once again bringing us all together for such productive dialogue . . . . . #tusadk #thisissustainable #adk #adirondacks #iloveny #ny #nys #newyork #diversity #inclusion #tourism #travel #travelunity #nysdec #seeyourcity #wildcenter #wildwalk #iForest #hospitality #hospitalitymanagement #meetmeinlp #adks #diversifyoutdoors #culturaldiversity #equity @adkfound @iloveny @wildcenter @impacttravelalliance @travelunity
