While the spell of its beauty may grip your imagination from inside a car window, a cabin or a hotel room, the Adirondack experience can only be felt outside those suffocating walls.
Breathe in the clean mountain air on a backcountry trail, a frozen lake or a snowy mountain. Catch snowflakes in your mouth. Make snow angels. Stand still and listen to the wind blow through the birch trees as they crack in the cold. Feed chickadees from your hand.
This is heaven on earth, and it's yours to enjoy.
