As a mom who loves to spend life outdoors, I love receiving gifts that will fuel my hobbies. However, not everyone knows what exactly an outdoorsy mom would love to receive. In this gift guide I want to share the best gift ideas for outdoorsy moms and all women out there that love to adventure in the great outdoors. I will be covering gifts ideas for hikers, backpackers, and campers.
Monte Sano State Park is located in north Alabama in the city of Huntsville. It provides a variety of hiking trails, camping, mountain views, and much more. In this guide I will be going over all the best things to do, best hiking trails to do with your family, places to visit, and more. I will also include our favorite places to go to around Huntsville, Alabama that are outside of Monte Sano State Park.
After having lived in Huntsville for almost 10 years, I never knew of any flowing waterfalls. Monte Sano had one small one that looked alright after heavy rain but nothing free flowing all year round. I made it a mission this summer to seek out a waterfall. I just knew that with all of the mountains, rivers, creeks, and streams, there had to be something, even if it was a small waterfall. Off I went with my family to Alum Hollow Trail to seek out what I found to be a small Nature Preserve with a not so well known waterfall hike.

As we were on our way to Fall Creek Falls I decided to do a quick stop at Rock Island State Park. It was on our way there and I just couldn’t help but take advantage of the opportunity that it was so close to our destination. Off we went searching for the Twin Falls […]
I’ve been to Florida many times. Even lived there for a year but never had the chance to really explore much of it. After all, it is a pretty huge state. I’m sure I will never get to explore it all. On our last trip to Florida we had the opportunity to explore a new […]
Camping, chasing waterfalls, and an abundance of hiking trails. This is what our weekend camping trip at Fall Creek Falls State Park consisted of. We were lucky to swim at the waterfall, cross suspension bridges, and fall asleep starring at the stars. It was definitely a family camping trip to remember. With this complete and […]
There is no better way to wake up in the mornings than with a delicious cup of coffee by a campfire. Without the convenience of a coffee maker outdoors, I can say we are lucky to live in a creative world where coffee outdoors is now easier than ever to make. From instant coffees, to […]
I remember last year when my dad and I went on our backpacking trip to South Cumberland State Park he had brought a water filter for us. I found it to be so convenient to have a small one that I started to look for one of my very own. After thorough research and comparing […]
