    "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."

  • Cross Country Ski Wear for Utah - What Counts Is On The Inside!

    Posted on January 18, 2013 by olinselot

    With temperatures lingering at a frosty 19 degrees you would think that most would cuddle up next to a warm fire and hide. But for one amazing mother in Utah, her fire seems to come from within!

    Shawna, of, shows that with the proper cross country ski wear, and a touch of scenic beauty, you can get outdoors and enjoy nature even on the coldest of days. She exemplifies the model family camper who isn't afraid to take her children along with her. Knowing how to be prepared with the right thermal layers gives her more confidence and comfort to do what she loves. What does Shawna love? She loves cross country skiing around a high altitude reservoir outside of Brigham City, Utah.

    It was no surprise to see her sporting some high quality ColdPruf Extreme Performance Thermals under her coat. Most of all she loves the comfort and bargain of her Merino Wool Outdoor Trail Socks.

    In regards to the Merino Wool Trail Socks - Shawna says, "First thing I noticed was how cushioned they were. They fit snug and the seams aren’t bothersome at the toe. They’ve kept my feet warm enough that I haven’t had to give them a second thought while outside."
