Hi, my name is Stephanie. I live in Virginia near Shenandoah National Park. I have spent many happy hours hiking and camping in the forests there with my children and my friends. I love to take nature pictures and have ample opportunities to capture many beautiful scenes.

On this site like to offer tips and “how to” articles that will help you enjoy yourself as you start to develop some outdoor interests. I particularly enjoy hiking and camping and have done a lot throughout my life, since I was a child.

Camping and hiking are great family activities and I’ll share some important tips on safe camping and hiking. I’ll even include some tips for the family pet! I’ll suggest activities for you and your family to do to learn about nature. When my children were little we camped with a big, heavy canvas tent. Fortunately, camping gear has advanced a lot since those days.

Our family did a lot of car camping when the children were young. As the children got older, we took a 6 week camping trip across the United States. We had a pop up trailer which served us well. It’s good to know some no-fail camping recipes and I’ll explain different ways to cook at a campsite.

As the children grew up, I made several backpacking trips with them as well as with an adventurous friend. You will hear about some of these travels on this site!

My other outdoor love is gardening. Because I’m also a gardener, I’ll be including articles and posts on my gardening adventures. As anyone who has gardened knows, no two years are alike. I grow flowers and vegetables. I don’t think you’re ever too old for that. I’ll share with you my triumphs and tragedies!

As you see, anything that allows me to be outdoors is what I choose to do! I hope you enjoy my website, Always Outdoors. Come back and visit often and if you like it, share it with your friends on Twitter and Facebook.
