Megan Swinney is the staff writer for Wide Open Spaces. With just under a decade of experience, she has written and edited for a variety of businesses and publications in the lifestyle space.
Raised along the coast of Southern California, she spent most of her time growing up in the sand and ocean when she wasn't playing year-round sports. Moving to the Sierra Foothills in Northern California in 2003 opened her eyes to new outdoor activities, and she is open to trying just about anything involving the outdoors. She enjoys camping, hiking, kayaking, snowshoeing, and traveling to unique destinations.
She loves sharing new gear recommendations, travel info, and trails with anyone who wants to get into nature. When she's not writing, you can find her exploring the mountains with her husband and two kids, planning road trips, or enjoying her backyard oasis with a book in hand.
