About

Enjoying the outdoors has become a lifestyle.
Living in Upstate NY with the Adirondack and Catskill Regions nearby has given the opportunity to discover many outdoor activities and meet a lot of wonderful people.
Between Hiking, Backpacking, Paddling, and most recently Climbing our lives have become quite fulfilling.
Arete is a way to integrate creativity with our love for the outdoors and share it with the outdoor community.
