Adirondack Life Magazine

Adirondack Life Magazine Beautiful photos and fascinating articles that help you explore the Adirondack Park, New York's stunning six-million-acre wilderness.
Founded in 1969, Adirondack Life has earned numerous national awards for the quality of its photography and design and the depth of its editorial content. The magazine covers New York's six-million-acre Adirondack Park, which offers more wild country than Yellowstone, Yosemite and Glacier National Parks combined. Within six bimonthly and two special-focus issues, the magazine explores the region's people, places, wildlife, history and public issues, and gives readers insider tips on outdoor recreation, from hiking and canoeing to ice-climbing and backcountry skiing. In late spring, a special issue is devoted entirely to outdoor pursuits; in fall, the "Collectors' Issue" typically features architecture, interior design, gardening and home products reflecting Adirondack style. Writers such as Bill McKibben, Russell Banks, Joe Connelly, Christine Jerome, Roxanne Robinson, Andrea Barrett and Amy Godine have contributed to the magazine. Their thoughtful essays, historical features and fiction illustrate how people respond to this special place. Nathan Farb, David Muench, Carr Clifton, Nancie Battaglia, Carl Heilman, Mark Bowie, Larry Barns and Ben Stechschulte are just some of the highly regarded photographers who share their work on our pages. In each issue, a mix of images and articles gives great insight into the park, where small towns coexist with wilderness. Our website presents a sample of articles from current issues, as well as information about writing and photography contests, reader demographics for advertisers and our signature products, from calendars and maps to apparel.

Hummingbird Moth
At first sight, it's easy to mistake a Hummingbird Moth for a tiny Hummingbird. It feeds on the nectar of flowers, hovering with the body stationary, its transparent wings beating so fast as to be nearly invisible, and a long proboscis protruding beaklike into the blossom.

Moose swimming in Long Lake, NY alert! A moose sighting on the north end last week. How do you get there from here? You either paddle, boat or hike to this area of Long Lake. It's very remote and surrounded by the Adirondack wilderness. Thanks to our mysterious guest photographer for sending in the shots to our long lake email!

I stumbled across this 1823 First Congregational Church in Lewis, New York .that was high upon a hill. It was the FISH weather-vane that got my attention since I have photographed many of them through the years.

Indigo Buntings ... One appeared on our window ledge in July 1999. They have returned like clock work every year since. Last year we had 5 pairs at the feeders. They are one of my favorite birds here, at home.
The female Indigo Buntings are of shades of brown.

Dawn light over our latest Brant Lake attraction. Since this is in the lake, does that make it a watermark rather than a landmark? I've seen lots of boats come around and check this out and over Memorial Day the trunk was lined with a number of bystanders who had gotten out of their kayaks.

The July/August issue of Adirondack Life—at the printer right now—contains an essay by Alice Green about growing up black in the Adirondacks of the 1950s and ‘60s, and her thoughts on how the region can become more diverse and welcoming to people of all colors and backgrounds. In light of the conversations around racism happening now in the Adirondacks and around the country, here is part of what she had to say:

“Where do we go from here to achieve diversity, social equity, justice and inclusion of all in the Adirondacks? … First, as the Alabama-based organization Equal Justice Initiative proclaims, ‘We must tell the truth about our history of racial injustice before we can address the legacy.’ "

I recently took a photo that numerous people suggested entering in your photo contest. Your deadline says it is December 2020, but when I clicked on the link to submit, it said the contest was over. I just wanted to notify you of this discrepancy. Best wishes.
