ADK Paddlefest: Where to Stay
Ecology 101. Sophomore year. While the subject material was interesting enough, I was fascinated with the tales the professor was adding on to the lesson plan: tales of high adventure, canyons, big rivers in places unknown to me. By the end of the class, I was registered for a 15-day rafting trip on the yet untamed Delores River and Colorado River in Southeast Utah. Two months later, I was on my way to the desert in the school van with 13 other students and my new college advisor, John Haldeman, listening to the Rolling Stones and Neil Young’s Down by the River on the AM radio. We floated that river, ran some big water and had a few close calls. Every mile we went I saw something new and exciting and have been hooked ever since. Since then, I have gone on many outdoor adventures. The vast majority have been in a raft, canoe, or kayak on some amazing rivers and wilderness areas, like the Colorado, the Green, the Suwanee, the Hudson, the Boundary Waters, and most recently, in south central Wyoming on the North Platte. Every time, I reveled in being away from the hassles of everyday life - no phones, no TVs, no traffic lights - refreshing my soul and my body, and realizing what little we need to survive and have fun. John has been with me on many of those adventures and I look forward to our next.
Everyone should take the time to get away, enjoy the solitude of the outdoors: to raft, hike, camp, bike, canoe, kayak or just sit on a rock contemplating the natural world surrounding them. It’s in all of us. You just have to get up and go. So, welcome to our 20th annual Paddlefest and Outdoor Expo, or what we like to call… Another Dam Paddlefest. We’re glad you’re here. Now go explore!
