Kayaking and hiking are so close it is hard to say which one is my favorite but if I had to pick I would say there is nothing more beautiful than getting up early to be on the water at sunrise, watching the mist rise from the lake with the first rays of sunlight reflecting off the water.
The most memorable outdoor adventure I had when I was younger was taking an impromptu rubber raft trip from Rollins Pond Campground to the Fish Creek Campground in the Adirondacks. My brother and cousin joined me along with another friend. Going from pond to pond and down the small streams, at times carring the raft when the water was too shallow, and finally coming out at the campground. The boys and I were so tired that we had to walk to the ranger station and ask that they notify my father to come and pick us up. Me, I wanted to do it again the next day, but I got overruled - by my parents.
Hi, my name is Dorothy and I have always enjoyed being outdoors. I love to kayak, bike and hike when it is warm and snowshoe in the winter. I have worked at LL Bean since November 2010 and I am looking forward to having you join our outings groups.
