Verplanck Colvin was born in 1847 in Albany, New York. From an early age, Colvin showed an interest in science and nature and loved hiking in the hills.
When he was 18, Colvin read Woods and Water, a book by a local man, Alfred Billings Street, about his adventures in the Adirondack Mountains. Street described fishing in mountain lakes, traveling down fast-moving rivers, and camping in pine forests. These tales captured Colvin’s imagination, and he set out to explore the Adirondacks.
