Upstate NY Is An Instagrammer’s Dream

We live for the weekend. So, this fall, we're sharing the epic destinations that are filling up our 48 hours of uninterrupted freedom in this new series, The Adventurists. Get inspired, and then show us your own #Epic48 weekend snaps on Instagram.
There's never a dull day at R29 HQ. One day, we're throwing a party for a cat (his name is Gary); another day, we're making a portrait of a top model out of eggplants and cheese. All sorts of crazy ideas come to life, and one of the creative minds we have to thank for that is photo editor Ida Hariri. From creating amazing photo shoots to managing R29's killer Instagram, Hariri always brings her creative game from 9 to 5. And, she steps it up after-hours, too.
Her personal Instagram feed is a font of nonstop action, where she makes commonplace activities like camping and hiking at a state park creatively inspiring — which is exactly what she does ahead. We teamed up with Secret's Scent Expressions and Destinations Collection to get an inside look at her weekend at Lake Taghkanic State Park. Click on to see how she turns her road trip upstate into an epic Instagram diary. And, take notes — you might want to take this trip next.
