Starting January 10, 2018

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.” - The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

That's one of the many notable quotes from the great MLK, whose holiday we celebrate this Monday. Speaking of first steps, getting out and moving around is the first step toward better health (wasn't that your New Year's Resolution?) and a perfect place to do that is from the Appalachian Mountain Club's Mohican Outdoor Center, located right here in Warren County, NJ. See the "More Things To Do" section below for info on MOC including a special Winter Hiking Getaway Weekend next week - you'll want to plan ahead and reserve now! Meanwhile, weather is slightly less frigid and so Centenary Stage Company kicks off the aptly named January Thaw Music Fest, which continues for two more weekends. And there are other shows in the Plan Ahead section where you'll want to line up your tickets now. Happy Wanderings!
