Have you ever traveled abroad and been inspired to create, write, or change the way you think about things? Many artists during the 1800s had a similar experience, and The Hyde Collection has compiled some of the resulting pieces for its new exhibition.

The wonderful biking trails in the Glens Falls Region are one of the reasons why so many bicyclists love exploring the area. While there are plenty of trails in Queensbury and Glens Falls, there's one thing that could make biking in the region even better - a trail network! A local group has proposed connecting the region's existing trails so it can eventually be a part of a state-wide trail system.

Glamping, or glamorous-camping, is a trend in luxury, insta-worthy camping that has been growing in popularity over the past few years. Glamping companies provide large tents with all the amenities of a hotel, but in the great outdoors. If you're picturing lush bed coverings, romantic mosquito netting, and strings of twinkling lights creating an almost magical atmosphere, then you're on the right track. 

Earlier this year we started following the story of glamping company Adirondack Safari's quest to bring glamping to the Warren County Fairgrounds
