Where is your favorite place to backpack?

I'm going to have to say my favourite hiking location is Australia/NZ. I'm an Aussie so that makes me biased... but I can't wait to add a few US locations to the list! I recently returned from a trip to Colombia, which reignited my love of hiking, my general appreciation for a well-maintained path (or any path at all - something missing from my favourite South American country), and the underlying gear lust that all hikers seem to posses.

What adventures are you interested in?

Where/what is your favorite dayhike?

Well, as an Oceania native (and having done a grand total of 0 hikes in the DC area), I'm going to say one of the most fantastic day hikes I've ever done was the Tongariro Crossing (NZ). If you ever needed more reasons to visit NZ... http://www.doc.govt.nz/parks-and-recreation/tracks-and-walks/central-north-island/ruapehu/tongariro-alpine-crossing/ I also have a nostalgic love for hikes in the New England area (Australia), which is up in the hinterland a couple of hours from my native town on the NSW coast.

Where would you like to go?

Introduction

I'm not that new to the US but haven't met any real hiking enthusiasts (I'm also car-less so it makes it a little more complicated) but I would love to explore some of the national parks in North America, hence joining a meetup group.
