As sad as I am to see winter go, I’m thrilled to be able to get out and enjoy the spring and summer hiking season. After missing a lot of the viable climbing months last year, I’m excited to get back out there and see some incredible summits.

Bonus points if you have a specific outdoor goal you’re working toward this season!
Walks on the beach, in the woods, and on mountain trails. Noticing the little things. Swimming in the pool!
Beach. My favorite walks have me looking down to find the treasures, with my toes in the sand.
Legit looking forward to not having to wear pants and/or a coat.
Also: Riding my bike around my city's lake.
I live in a very hot city, so a lot of my "summer activity" stuff locally is "how the hell do we get out of this place, it's the worst". So think high-altitude cities that have camping or similar options.
Since we’re pretty far from our beloved mountains we get a lot of mileage in Nashville’s many wonderful parks. But by far our favorite haunt is our backyard acreage , the woods, the river.
I'm running my first half-marathon in June!
Really looking forward to some casual outdoor running without having to bundle up in layers!
There is a park near where I live that has a very nice trail. I like hiking along the trail and running through the park when the weather is nice.
