Tales of a Mountain Mama aims to help inspire families to get outdoors and adventure, even with young children.

We share our stories from out on the trails, in the woods, and in the mountains, provide tips and tricks, and welcome feedback from our readers!  Most importantly, we are just a normal family getting out there and showing that it is possible (because we all know how overwhelming being a parent in itself can be!).

We also happen to be big believers in the fact that sometimes an investment in great gear is a worthwhile step in helping getting the entire family out. Watch for a diverse make-up of honest gear reviews and giveaways. Finally, we love to feature occasional guest bloggers and experts to round out our own knowledge and experience.


Amelia & Her Family

Amelia writes from Grand Teton National Park where she lives with her husband and five young children.

Amelia started the blog in 2011 after the birth of her second child.  She realized that for her own sanity, she needed to be able to continue to get out and adventure, even as their family expanded.  

She made a new commitment to get out every day with her kids (and husband, of course) and began to write about it.  Hence the birth of Tales of a Mountain Mama.  She is also a long-time “gear head” and strongly believes that good gear is essential to happy adventures (because there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!).
