Motherhood Moments: How to be a Mountain Mom


What does it take to be a Mountain Mom?

1. Have a kid

2. Get outside

Okay, maybe that’s an over simplification, but loving the outdoors with your kids really can be easy. Whether it’s celebrating Kids to Parks Day May 21, 2016picking up trash along a river trail or camping in your backyard, spending time with kids outdoors makes memories for the whole family.

This Mother’s Day I wanted to share a photo essay of some of my favorite outdoor moments with my kids. You may not see the packing, wrestling, bribing and crying that went into some of these moments, but to be honest once I’m out on the trail I don’t see those things either. Happy Mother’s Day! Enjoy!
