Where is your favorite place to backpack?

Eclectic basically, my favorite place to backpack is here and there. Having backpacked around Mt. Blanc, followed the Haute Raute as well as various routes in the Canadian Rockies, I love pitching my tent in novel areas without getting too obsessive about one. Suffice it to say, I have backpacked in Europe, Japan, South and North America, so I've seen a few corners of the world.

Where/what is your favorite dayhike?

On a clear day, Cascade Pass in the North Cascades National Park. On a cloudy day, the Lake Ozette triangular hike in Olympic National Park. On a partly cloudy day, areas near El Calfate. On a humid day, hiking along one of the long beaches on Long Island. On a rainy day, somewhere else.
