Jul 28, 2010 — This week we're celebrating summer by getting outdoors in the North Country.
In this high-tech, busy world, the Laurentian Chapter of the Adirondack Mountain Club would like more families to move from desktop to mountaintop. The group sponsored its first season of hikes introducing kids to mountains and trails last summer. Family excursions included hikes along beginner mountain trails -- day trips into the outdoors with youngsters in mind. Todd Moe tagged along during a hike up Mount Arab and found families reconnecting with nature.
