Broadwing Adventures teamed up with the Wild Center for a paddling eXpedition down the Saranac River. A fun group of paddlers enjoyed cooperating weather, Great Blue Herons and Kingfisher too numerous to count, and the McKenzie Wilderness Area as a back drop for an enjoyable day.
We'll be partnering on two more canoeing and hiking trips with the Wild Center. Click below for more information
Jack guided two aspiring 46er's this weekend up the Seward Range including Seward, Donaldson, and Emmons Peaks. They hiked in to nice primitive campsite on Friday and hiked the three peaks Saturday. They hiked out this morning for approximately 14 miles over two-days of hiking. The weather, with a couple of exceptions cooperated. It was hot and muggy on Friday and it rained for about two hours during their descent of Emmons. It was an area that Jack led many trips when running NCCC's Wilderness Recreation Leadership Program in the nineteen-eighties and nineties.

We've been a little negligent on our Blog because we have been so busy in the outdoors. The water levels are high and we've had more than our fair share of rain. None the less we've been paddling and hiking like crazy. Check out our Facebook page to see what we're up to.
