Melody Forsyth


Trail mom, Down syndrome advocate and nurse, Melody has a schedule filled with all kinds of adventures! She and her family love backpacking and visiting National Parks as a way to spend quality time together. If she's not backpacking with her family, she's likely inviting some newbies out to show them they can do it too! We've learned so many great family backpacking tips and #mhhacks from Melody and always appreciate her willingness to share the outdoors and encourage everyone to get outside and play!

What's your favorite Mountain House meal?

We love the Chili Mac and, of course, Biscuits and Gravy.

What's your favorite place to hunt/hike/fish/climb/be?

We love southern Utah! The desert is so beautiful.

Top three pieces of gear that you never leave home without?

We love our Kids comfort carrier! We always need it. I never go anywhere without a Kula cloth, and Goal Zero phone charger.

What's one bucket list item you plan on checking off this year?

We want to do a longer backpack this year with the whole family.
