If you're anything like us, this past winter has been a season of hunkering down and staying mostly inside—even if it was inside a bar, restaurant, or museum. But if the weather (and our seasonal allergies) are any indication, spring is here—which means summer adventures are just around the corner. So, this week, to get you kickstarted on summer planning and offer some inspo for getting yourself outside once again, we're joined by Emily Pennington, a Women Who Travel contributor and Outside’s national park columnist, and Megan Spurrell, Traveler's senior editor. We talk all things outdoors, from the best strategy for getting national park camp site permits to the women inspiring us to get moving.

Meredith Carey: Hello.
LA: Spring is here in full force, which means warmer temperatures and longer days are hopefully just around the corner. To talk about taking advantage of the coming sunny days, we are joined by Emily Pennington, a Women Who Travel contributor and Outside’s national park columnist, and Megan Spurrell, Traveler's senior editor, to talk all things outdoors—from how we can get our bodies moving now that winter's come to a close, to the summer adventures we are most looking forward to. Thanks for both joining us.
