Bear Safety for Families






    I know it’s hard to imagine, but it really won’t be TOO long before the bears start appearing again, hungry and grumpy. Maybe it’s why I like winter so much – the hibernation (or at least mostly!) of bears…. But, in all seriousness, bears ARE something not to be taken lightly. I fully believe in […]

            Winter Camping for Families






              ***This post is sponsored by Pine Mountain, because cozy fires are truly one of the best parts of winter camping!** To be honest, our summers are usually pretty hit or miss as far as camping trips.
