With all of these amazing adventure feeds, and mountain families popping up on Instagram It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking that we need to travel far to capture these beautiful moments. This is not the case.
There is beauty in your own backyard, and little gems that you haven’t even found yet. Sure, travelling into the mountains is breathtaking and amazing. It’s a treat really. But so is only having to pack enough snacks for an hour, and driving 10 minutes down a dirt road to the prettiest little creek spot.
We do love travelling, and discovering new landscapes, but we also believe that it’s important to explore local, and appreciate the beauty that lays before us.
So don’t put too much pressure on yourself mama. Pack some snacks, drinks, extra socks, and hit up a local creek, river or lake. You might even take a wrong turn and stumble upon something really special.
