Winter is my favorite time of year. I love the snow crystals as they sparkle in the sun, I love patterns and colors of the ice as the winter freeze takes hold of our lakes, waterways and forests and I love the silent beauty after a storm when the world is sleeping. You can learn to love winter. It’s about learning to embrace the beauty of the season. The hustle and bustle of summer has ended and the holiday extravagance season is over.
On Wednesday January 9th at 6:30pm I will be giving a presentation for the Sebasticook Regional Land Trust on my favorite places to ski and snowshoe in Maine. From walking out your backdoor to a more adventurous journey to Baxter State Park winter offers something for all fitness levels.
Learning to embrace the winter is key to living a fulfilling and healthful life in the North East.
$5.00 donation to Sebasticook Regional Land Trust suggested.
Wilderness First Aid (WFA) creates a solid foundation in the basics of backcountry medical care. It is 16 hours long (two days), and focuses on the basic skills of: Response and Assessment, Musculoskeletal Injuries, Environmental Emergencies, Survival Skills, Soft Tissue Injuries, and Medical Emergencies.
This is an incredible course! Not only will you gain the skills you need to care for people in a remote location. But, you will have a fantastic time…it is fun and fast moving. There will be a mix of classroom sessions, practice sessions and outdoor scenarios. Check out some of the program reviews!

Camden Hills is the gem of Mid-Coast Maine. Spectacular hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, paddling, mountain biking and climbing make this a fantastic multi-sport destination. On Saturday February 9th join North Star Adventures for a Camden Hills Snowshoe Adventure. We will begin our journey from Maiden Cliff Trailhead at 9:00am for a full-day adventure along the ridge trail to Ocean Lookout. The complete loop back to the Maiden Cliff parking lot is 6 miles. This is one of my favorite winter snowhoe loops. You will have fantastic views of Lake Megunticook and Penobscot Bay on the hike out to Ocean Lookout. As we drop down and and complete the loop you will have incredible views of the cliffs and streams that run along the base of Megunticook. This is an intermediate trip, you must be in good physical conditon.
March is the perfect winter month! Daylight has started to return, the temperatures are reasonable and we have a lot of snow! Our winter weekend will take us to Rockwood Maine where we still stay in a rustic cabin on Moosehead Lake. We will be skiing on groomed trails and have the option (conditions permitting) to ski over to Kineo and ski around the base (or maybe hike to the top). Arrival time is 4:00pm on Friday…in time for dinner and perhaps a nighttime ski or snowshoe. All meals and accomodations are included. Designed for beginners and intermediate skiers.
Tanglewood Camp in Lincolnville Maine is the setting for this Winter Watercolor Adventure. We will either snowshoe or hike the trails along the Ducktrap River. In my mind this is one of the most beautiful and peaceful watersheds on the mid-coast. The sparkling water, ice crystals, suspension bridge and forest ecosystem are spectacular. Using this backdrop for inspiration artist and teacher Lesia Sochor will guide students in painting with watercolors. By observing the natural surroundings, weather permitting, students will do quick watercolor studies coming back to enlarge or combine what they’ve seen by painting indoors. If it is too cold to paint plein air, photographs will be taken of the environment and paintings made from them.
