Where is your favorite place to backpack?

My favorite backpacking trip was in Yellowstone National Park (Grizzly Bear Country!). More recently (and locally), I have especially enjoyed backpacking in Dolly Sods (WV) and the Black Moshannon area (central PA).

Where/what is your favorite dayhike?

Hard to pick just one! So here are several: Hike/canyoneering adventure in Zion National Park (Utah). Mt. Mansfield, the tallest mountain in Vermont. Many hikes in Acadia National Park (Maine). Mt. Ceahlo in the Carpathian Mountains (Romania). Hikes on the Isle of Skye, Lewis, and Harris (Scotland). Mountains in Hautes-Gorges de la Riviere Malbaie (Quebec). Hiking to Spirit Lake, near Mt. St. Helens (WA). Mt. Monadnock (NH). Mt. Algonquin in Adirondacks. And many others!

Where would you like to go?

I want to do more backpacking. I have gone on about 12 several-night backpacking trips in my life, most of them in the past year. But I am still a beginner, and learn new things each trip I go on.
