Amanda moved to the Adirondacks after she came for a visit, went for a hike, and never left. Falling completely in love with the area, she now spends all her free time playing in the woods. Whether hiking up, biking down, or climbing across, Amanda found her home in the mountains. She is a certified Wilderness First Responder, and part of a volunteer Search and Rescue crew based in Saranac Lake.
With each season in the Adirondacks having something new to offer, she shares her adventures year round through hiking, camping, ice climbing and mountain biking. Come out and play!
