Tales of a Mountain Mama!
Amelia 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.
"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.
The 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."
In 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.

"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."
