Our Mission:

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 here at TalesOfAMountainMama care about our community.  Join our Facebook group and be apart of a gear-centric, outdoorsy family community where you can ask a whole community of people like you, questions and recommendations about gear for getting outside!

  5. I will enjoy reading your blog. I worked in yellowstone for 5 summers, met my husband there. We hiked with our two kids, starting at a few months old. I now have my first grandchild!!

  14. Hi,

    I really liked your review of the pea pod travel beds. My husband and I want to take our 1.5month old camping. The pea pods are for 1 yr minimum. Any suggestions on what our little guy can sleep in?

    Thank you,
    Sabrina

    1. Hi Sabrina – for a newborn (6ish weeks old, right??) I always put them in a snowsuit or bunting (instead of a sleeping bag) and then let them sleep on top of an adult sleeping bag (for padding) or a dog bed works really well too. They’re not moving much then – they just have to stay warm! Does that help?

  15. So psyched I found your blog! I am currently 18 weeks along with our first! And I’m writing to you from the passenger seat of our car as we drive from Big Horn Wyoming to Pikes Peak Colorado on our yearly road trip camping/hiking trip! People keep saying that this will be our last trip like this for a while, and I was starting to believe them! I thought maybe I was being unrealistic to think that this time next year we won’t be able to go on our adventures! But your blog gives me hope! Keep it up!! I’ve subscribed and I look forward to reading!

  16. Hi Mountain Mama! I just found your blog, and I’m looking forward to reading some more of your posts! I had a blog a while back where I blogged about the adventures that my husband and I went on, but when I had our son, almost 2 years ago (where did that time go?!), I decided to change gears and moved my blog to RaisingARoamer.com. I haven’t gotten back into writing regularly (I’m working on it!), but I’d love for you to check it out. Enjoy your day!

  17. I just came across your blog and love it! We share the same passion as you and your family, but we explore the outdoors in Minnesota. We visited Yellowstone when our son was a few months old, and it was one of my favorite vacations.
