Trail Guide

Fall in Acadia
The Freelance Adventurer - 
A guide to local New England Adventures and beyond...
by Lindsey Hansen

When I moved to Northern New England 7 years ago, the only way I could find interesting outdoor day trips was to read a thick travel book or ask a local.  Still, I was often referenced to the same two or three hikes or viewpoints.  After visiting Mt. Agamenticus and Mt. Washington 3 or 4 times, I was aching for something new.  I realized I'd have to take this adventure seeking into my own hands.

 The goals of this blog is the following:

Summit of Mt. Pierce
Hiking in New Hampshire

1. Document my adventures so I can revist my experiences and recall those adventures.
2.  Provide ideas for other visitors to my region and to the locals of Northern New England  who are looking for interesting day, weekend, and road trips.
3.  Display my outdoor photography to those who appreciate the Northeast North America and beyond.

My Experience...

Writing: I received great feedback about my summer's short blog about a trip to Newfoundland (On the Rock) that I decided to continue blogging my adventures. I also have a few published pieces and an award for my play "Standing North".

Hiking and Adventuring: I have worked at multiple outdoor facilities/adventure places including six seasons for Appalachian Mountain Club as a Mountain Classroom Instructor and Teen Wilderness Adventure Instructor.  I have also worked as an environmental instructor at The Whale Camp, Jackson Bottom Wetlands Preserve, and Los Angeles County Outdoor Science School.
