Meet my friend Amelia.

You might already know her from her amazingly awesome website, Tales Of A Mountain Mama. If you don’t I’m happy to introduce you to her.

But what you probably don’t know about her is that she’s the mother of (almost) 5, some of the secrets of living in Yellowstone National Park, and the fact that she hated outdoor adventure as a child.

Today our conversation is special because we talk a lot about traveling throughout Wyoming and Montana.

You can find Amelia at Tales of a Mountain Mama and all over social media and I hope that you enjoy our conversation.
