Start 2015 off by doing the right thing and purchasing your very own Maine State Parks Pass (day use). Veterans and those that are 65 (and over) get in for free!
I just sent in my $35 , primarily for bypassing the $3 daily fee to hike the extensive and superb trails in nearby Camden Hills State Park.
The great State of Maine has over 700,000 acres of Parks and Public Lands, with a huge variety of locations. Their updated web site is easy to use and very helpful in planning your encounters in the outdoors.
2015 is my year to stay local, and have #microadventures. I am very excited about the approach taken by Alistair Humphrey in his soon-to-be-released paperback ( Feb 3, 2015) Microadventures. The Kindle edition is available in the USA via Amazon. The book is my favorite outdoors read for 2014. Check it out. It’s highly British, but the approach can be adapted anywhere.
Nature is the Real Gym !
