Amelia Mayer is the blogger behind Tales of a Mountain Mama where she’s been inspiring families to get outdoors for over 6 years. An avid hiker, biker, skier and busy mother of 5 she admits that she finds sanity and peace in the outdoors and strives to make an outdoor, active life part of her family’s normal routine.

Amelia lives outside of Teton National Park and loves waking up to the view of the Tetons.



Susan Strayer is a camper, hiker, biker, off-roader, swimmer and snowboarder who lives with her husband and three young children near Sundance Ski Resort in Utah. She also spent most of the summer of 2016 camping with her family and you’ll find lots of useful information from this adventure in the Outdoor Mom Academy.

When she’s not exploring Susan is the blogger behind Mountain Mom and Tots. Before raising kids full time and blogging part time, Susan graduated from college with a degree in Marriage, Family, and Human Development and completed coursework to be a certified family life educator. She tries to spend time outdoors everyday because it calms her and helps her be a more patient mom.
