Opening Night at The Pursuit Series, New York

By: Pursuit Series + Save to a List

Adventurers from far and wide gather for a weekend of adventure at Hunter Mountain, New York.

Early morning rain greeted those eager to show up early and the clouds broke by mid-afternoon as would-be adventurers and explorers come from as many as 24 states and as far away as California and Hawaii. Moosejaw Camp Hosts shuttled people up and down the hills to their campsites overlooking the beautiful Catskill Mountains. Spirits were high; laughs were many.

Marmot tents by the dozen became the  “Pumpkin Patch” as Under Canvas erected teepees and safari tents lit by a waning moon and hundreds of LUCI lights. As the sun set in dramatic fashion, attendees gathered around fires with chocolate and wine, *hopefully* off to bed at a decent hour.

Adventure awaits. Everyone outside.
