Strolling through the past
We had the pleasure of visiting Acadia a few weeks ago and took up the slightly nutty idea of hiking the Precipice Trail in sneakers. Um, never follow our lead when it comes to outdoors activities.
Don't get me wrong - the trail was absolutely stunning, but let's just say that an exposed, nearly 1,000 ft climb up the east face of Champlain Mountain requires proper footwear :)
On Sunday, Ken Burns' National Parks series aired on PBS and we've since organized our evenings this week around each episode because it's just that good. In fact, after last night's showing, I think our next stop is Crater Lake. If you've been, I'd love to hear about your experience.
Oh, and I promise to buy hiking boots for this trip or we'll have to stay in the car.
