Take a moment, take a seat and take it in

Looking for that special place where all your worries melt away? In July 2015, Riding Mountain placed 8 sets of red Adirondack chairs at enchanting, scenic locations throughout the park for visitors to discover and take in exquisite surroundings and lakeside vistas. Some chairs are easy to find, and other require more of an adventure! Each location shares a great story about the landscape and history.
