Adirondack Events: August 6-8. 2010

Midsummer already and so much still to do. There are trails that we haven't gone on and swimming holes to still discover. With a park the size of Yellowstone, Everglades, Glacier, and Grand Canyon National Park combined it seems like a daunting task to attempt to conquer it all. We have plenty of time.
