When fadder stops to check the route back down but princess pittie-hound tries to tell him she already knows the way. * * Who else cannot believe it is August already?? Seems like we were just talking about rotten snow and the return of the black flies. It is about this time every year when I realize my Summer list of to-dos has just slipped on by. August is shaping up to be pretty busy for us but I am hoping to still knock a few off the list. Also, I hear Halloween stuff is already out... * * #boopythecheeseslayer #optoutside #ourwild #barkeaters #leavenotrace #pureadk #keepitwild #wildaboutthepark #adkexplorerpix #addnysrangers #adirondacks #beanoutsider #llbeancontest2019 #smoreoutofsummer #findyourbackcountry #howiplayintheadk #getoutmor ...

Surprisingly I didn’t take a ton of pictures when back in the Adirondacks. We were too busy enjoying them! On this day we had to change plans because the put in parking lot for our originally planned lake was completely full. That didn’t stop us - we went down the road to another lake and ended up with a gorgeous day finding wild blueberries and catching loads of fish 🎣 ...

The first Adirondack chair was created by Thomas Lee around 1903. Lee was searching in vain for comfortable outdoor furniture for his country cottage in Westport, NY. Bunnell (a “friend”) immediately saw the appeal of Lee’s creation. Unbeknownst to Lee, he applied for a patent on the design, which he received in 1905. Bunnell called them Westport Chairs, and sold them very profitably for the next twenty years from coast to coast and abroad. Where have you seen Adirondack chairs outside of NY? Let us know in the comments. #DackFact⁠ PC: adkpioneer⁠ –⁠ #pureadk #explorationunbound #adirondacks #6millionacreplayground #adirondackpark #adirondackmountains #exploreny #exploreadk #wildaboutthepark #visitadks #adk #adks #adksusa #adkexplorerpix #adklife #adirondacklife #localadk #leavenotrace #wildnortheast #upstateny #newyork #adirondackchair #adkchair⁠ ...
