  • Tales of a Mountain Family - APPROVED

    Posted on November 12, 2013 by olinselot

    Tales of a Mountain Mama!

    talesofmountainmamalogoAmelia brings to us a wonderful, adventurous spirit from Yellowstone National Park! She takes advantage of every opportunity that comes her way to take her little ones outdoors, and share their experiences. Her content has a fun feel and is great information for outdoor enthusiast of all ages, not only families.  Amelia shares her story of what actually inspired her to share herself with the world through blogging about her passion of the outdoors.

    talesofmountainmamakiss"Two years ago, my second child was 4 months old, and I was realizing more than ever that getting out as a family and doing what we love was going to pose some challenges as our family grew.  To be honest, I was sleep-deprived and doing everything I could get outside as much as possible (in "protest" to the 6 weeks I spent on bed rest.)  I realized that I was not alone and, shockingly, there were many parents who chose to "hibernate" with newborns and young children because it was just so HARD to get out.  I understood the feeling, but also knew that my kids (and my husband and I) were happiest in the fresh air of nature.  The challenge was worth it. 
    talesofmountainmamaskiThe blog started as an outlet for me and, more importantly, a challenge to myself also to do what was best for myself and my family - to continue doing what we loved outside.  It has grown into a community, and I am ever-learning and challenged by our readers too!"

    While "Tales of a Mountain Family" is an outlet for Amelia and her family, she gives a perspective that is inspiring to her readers. A mother who uses her passion of the outdoors and writing combined as a way to inspire others is amazing. You will find a variety on her blog from informative gear reviews to recipes.

    Where is "Tales of a Mountain Family" headed? Amelia has a vision that she also shares with us...

    "As the blog grows and expands, I hope that it becomes even more of a place where families turn to find honest gear reviews (because we know that great gear helps keep kids warm and happy too) and inspiration.  I hope for even more of an interaction on our accompanying Facebook page where safe conversation happens to encourage an outdoor life.  The blog isn't just for young families, but that is where we are at right now in life and who I can relate to most right now."   
    talesofmountainmamafamilyIn an effort to appeal to readers across the country, Amelia has brought on a contributing writer to "Tales of a Mountain Family."  Ann has three children, and shares Amelia's passion for recreating with her family in the Florida urban environment.
    Visit The blog! You won't be disappointed!

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will
    flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their
    own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will
    drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
    ― John Muir

    "Encouragement and ideas concerning wholesome outdoor recreation"

    “Teaching children about the natural world should be treated as one of the most important events in their lives.” – Thomas Berry


    Shawna, the creator of, shares the vision for her blog as a growing resource  for those seeking ideas and encouragement for getting kids outside.
    We wanted to know why she started blogging and what keeps her going, considering shes been online since 2008...this was her reply:

    "Being outside everyday was a common thing for me as a child. A farm life kind of forces that on you with all the work and play that is provided. But when I became a mother of four little ones and living in a city with neighbors on all sides I realized my children were going to have a disconnection from nature unless I did something about it. I find such joy and amazement from recreating outside that I knew I didn't want my children to miss out on that. So we headed outside each day, whether it was for a short walk or a week long camping trip with rock climbing and mountain biking along the way. I knew that this disconnection from nature wasn't just a challenge my family was facing so I took this passion a step further and began blogging about our adventures outside, in hopes to educate and encourage others to head outdoors. My ultimate goal in this is to help each child find a hobby in the outdoors to call their own. This hobby turns into a love for their surroundings and in turn makes them better stewards of the land around them. Because we all know we take care of what we love."

  • Winter Running

    Posted on October 25, 2013 by olinselot

    As the air becomes chilly, and the leaves begin to change, so must our activewear. Winter running can be uncomfortable, but it doesn't have to be! reached out to a seasoned runner in South Eastern Idaho in hopes of discovering some tips for running during the winter months.

    Brett BawdenBrett Bawden and is his lovely wife Josie train year round, and the cold weather doesn't slow them down one bit. Brett and Josie train to qualify for the Boston Marathon and other races all year, and they take their training seriously. Brett and Josie are well known in their community for their personal training tips, and starting the "Just Cuz Half Marathon" in Pocatello, ID.  Brett was kind enough to give our readers some guidelines on running in the cold. He makes it clear that by using the proper activewear you can avoid feeling uncomfortable when running outside.

    Brett changes his activewear depending on the temperature. When the weather is nice and anything above 40 degrees he wears basic running shorts and a light tee shirt. Once the temperature drops below 40 degrees, he throws on a wind breaker and some running pants.

    coldpruf premium performance topHowever, when the temperature drops below twenty five degrees, it is time to break out the big guns! Running tights and a top are essential for staying warm and dry.
    The Coldpruf premium performance thermals are a great option if you don't want the cold to slow you down from your active life. This product stands up to other leading brands but is half the price. The polyester / spandex blend gives protection against high winds while the trim fit keeps the material from bunching during high activity.
    coldpruf premium performance bottom

    These thermals are great for that cold weather run, and a cross-country ski workout, or on the ski slope. They are designed for maximum dryness and antimicrobial odor-control. This is perfect for any distant runner who is training this winter season. We also have Coldpruf Premium Performance Thermals for women as well!
