The Adirondack Coast has a world of opportunities right at our fingertips. Along the 121 mile coast of Lake Champlain, over 3,000 lakes and ponds, 6,000 miles of rivers and streams, 46 mountain peaks over 4,000′, The greatest vertical ski slope in the East, and much more, you’ll find yourself emersed in nature as it should be. If nature isn’t on your to do list, stop by the local museums, tour historical sites, sample the many dining establishments,or relax at an Adirondack spa.
The method behind my writing of this blog is to introduce people to this magnificent place I call home. If you are local and in search of something to do, or visiting and looking for advice from a local, then this blog is for you. I will be visiting local events, enjoying local restaurants, hiking the trails, paddling the waterways, and more to bring to you the where, what and how of the Adirondack Coast.
In my travels I am always game for suggestions. Have you have been somewhere that you feel is worth a visit? Is there something you are interested in trying, but don’t know exactly how to go about it? Let me know. I am always up for suggestions.
My hope is that the readers of my blog can take away from it the inspiration to go and explore what the Adirondack Coast has to offer.
Thank you for visiting.
About the Writer
My name is Ben Bradford. I have been living in the region most of my thirty years with the exception of my first four years in Japan and Virginia, four years in Florida, and three years in Maine. I would categorize myself as a lover of all things nature. I am passionate about kayaking, canoeing, hiking, and snowshoeing. I do spend much of my time working a full time job to finance my passion for the outdoors and my passion for painting.
I have been painting exclusively in oils for the past seven years. I enjoy painting scenes from nature that I have been to. The Adirondacks make for an ever changing subject thats hard to ignore. Before becoming an oil painter I worked in all media from colored pencils to pottery, but found my true passion in the pigment of the oil paints.
