Outdoor Summer Round Up!

From North to South, East to West, Summer came and is still here for another month but children are going back to school and vacations are ending. So let's celebrate these wonderful outdoors adventures that Summer brought this year!

Author Jennifer Chambers of "Watershed Adventures of a Water Bottle" and Hiking Along, recently had a family hike up to the Nubble on Giant Mountain in the Adirondack Mountains, New York.  What a view!
