Mountaineer Florian Hill presents at Outdoor Rise
ÒI spent 6 days hiking and biking the length of the Hudson River, here in the states. The Hudson is the longest river in New York State and the lifeblood of the state- it gets its source at the beautiful alpine Lake Tear of the Clouds (just shy of the summit of the highest peak in New York's Adirondack Mtn's: Mt Marcy) and from there it wends its way through many historical towns, the state's capital, meets the Eerie Canal and eventually ends at the ocean in Manhattan, by the Statue of Liberty.
If you live in New York City and have a chance to visit the Beartooth Wilderness of Montana, get your hands dirty and disconnect from what you perceive to be reality, I recommend it. But beware, you may end up questioning what you know and be tempted to adopt a new lifestyle...
We also observed the difference between cutting though living, green trees and dead ones. The dead ones are a lot tougher to get through, and there were plenty of dead blowdowns in this area. Jeremy explained that there was a huge wildfire in the late summer of 1988. Nearly 800,000 acres of Yellowstone National Park were affected by the fires, and led to the closing of the park for the first time in history.
Evan has been a guide at Discover Outdoors for six years, leading adventurers on trails everywhere from Queens to Canada. While he's in the city he stays busy running, biking, practicing yoga, and eating new, excellent food.
Growing up hiking the beautiful Southeastern US and the hills of Germany, Marc's love for nature and the outdoor experience began young. From the mountains of Yosemite to the waters of the Florida Coast, Marc is always ready and excited to get outside.
