I love to plan family travel adventures with our four kids. Encouraging time in nature, National Parks travel, backpacking and hiking are my passions and I love to write about them.


  • We are taking our four children (12,9,7,4) to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. Any ideas for shorter hikes that would give the biggest bang for our buck? I have never been to either place.

  • I’ve been following your blog for years and wanted to thank you for providing so many wonderful National Parks tips and insights! We’ve made such great use of your suggestions–from enjoying a stay in the tent cabins at Colter Bay to Whale Rock hike in Canyonlands to stopping at Wall Drug in SD–our family has had so many amazing experiences because of your fantastic posts. We’re so excited about your family’s 3 month road trip, and can’t wait to read about your upcoming adventures, especially hiking Mt. St. Helens! Happy travels to you and your family!
