Lisa Ballard is a third generation Adirondack native. Born in Saranac Lake, New York - in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondack Park - she has hiked, paddled, fished, and skied in the Adirondacks her entire life. Though now a resident of Montana, she travels back to the Adirondacks each summer to visit her family, explore the backcountry, and enjoy her second home on Chateaugay Lake.
