A grand yoga adventure
Maine Yoga Adventures is offering several opportunities for both children and adults to connect with nature, practice yoga and take part in a myriad of fun activities as a group. The company was founded this summer by Holly Twining, who has been teaching yoga since 2011 but has practiced yoga on and off for almost 20 years.
The first of the four events this fall is Young Yogis Adventure, Sept. 19from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Orono. Your child can experience a fun afternoon of yoga, nature hikes, food and a martial arts lesson. The cost is $55 but parents come along for free and can participate as much as they like, in fact, it is encouraged.

Trekking in Nepal offers adventure
GHOREPANI, Nepal — Dawn’s golden light caught the tops of the snowcapped Himalayas and gradually crept downward as the rising sun lit up a sweeping arc of soaring peaks, at once forbidding and starkly beautiful.
The stunning vista from the top of Poon Hill — at 3,193 meters (10,475 feet), the highest point of our family’s six-day trek in Nepal — was among many highlights of a “Lord of the Rings”-like adventure through lush forests, terraced fields and traditional villages nestled above plunging valleys.
Vintage Snowmobile riders brave frigid temps
BANGOR/HERMON – The Paul Bunyan Snowmobile Club held its 6th annual Vintage Snowmobile Ride in conjunction with the Pine Tree Society’s Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser at Dysart’s Restaurant on Broadway in Bangor. The Pine Tree Society owns the Pine Tree Camps for disabled children and young adults. A portion of the registration fee that PBSC charged went to assist the Pine Tree Society.
The Vintage Snowmobile Ride, though technically in its sixth year, had to miss a few years in the interim due to lack of snow conditions. It was up in the air until about the week before, but even the subzero temps couldn’t keep people away. The snowmobilers enjoyed groomed trails, which made for good riding conditions even though the snow wasn’t terribly deep.
