Adventure Through the Holidays!

    WINNERS HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED!!!! Email me at mountainmamatales(at)gmail to claim!!

    Yes, yes, we know this is a SUPER busy time for many of us. There are parties and events and kids out of school and nasty weather and cookies to bake.

    But, if we’re honest with ourselves, we know it is all the MORE crucial to get everyone outside and active. For our bodies, our sanity and clarity of mind. Oh and for laughter too – that’s a big one!

    Rebecca of Hike Like a Woman and I have teamed up again to bring you a little motivation this holiday season. And we’re so excited to share!


    The holidays can be challenging. Between shopping, planning, giving, and partying we are often left with little time to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty and magic of the winter season.

    In an effort to encourage all of us to take a few minutes to get outdoors this holiday season I’ve teamed up with Tales of a Mountain Mama again to offer you a challenge, a challenge to Adventure Through The Holidays.

    Adventure Through The Holidays is a fun and easy way to get outdoors and a chance to win some amazing prices from our generous sponsors.

    It’s kind of like our summer challenge, but not exactly so pay close attention!
