As Mainers, we don’t always realize how easy we have it. Life in the Pine Tree State is very good indeed.

This website is intended to be an online magazine focusing on the best outdoor adventures in Maine from rock climbing in Acadia NP to sea kayaking in Casco Bay.  But, something new to this website will be contributions ranging from film photography to the best thrift stores around town. The best stuff for the least amount of money is a passion of mine.

If you are an outdoor-minded creative looking to contribute stories and media, please contact me at:


If you are wondering about the name Dirigo, let me enlighten you. In Latin, Dirigo means “I lead” and it is our state motto. I hope our adventures get you off the couch and into the great outdoors.

See you on the trail,

Amelia Marjerison
