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.


  • What a great story and what a wonderful experience for her to have. It makes me wish I would have known how much I loved the outdoors at her age.
