All around New England and I went to Norway this summer which was awesome.
I didn't get to summit Katahdin though, it sucked.

i live in alaska. just about ANY where is good hiking. i love getting on top of a mountain and just following it from peak to peak. we have a lot of glaciers around here, so those are always great to see. you could spend a life time hiking all the mountains in AK.

I'm going to Alaska one of these years. I had a roommate from there and he had videos he took from his airplane and it was amazing.
I don't really do any hiking where I live right now, but I've done some great hiking in Arizona. Palm Canyon(south of Quartzite), Table Top Mountain(southeast of Gila Bend), Granite Mountain(Prescott). Went to one place in SoCal real close to Yuma, AZ, called Wind Cave or something like that. Also went to some Wind Caves in Anza Borrego in CA, that was awesome too, but really hot. There were places you could see salt in the cracks in the rock from milleniums ago when that desert was actually the bottom of the sea!
Here's a pic from above Palm Canyon. :)

I hike the Ruby Mountains in north eastern Nevada. In the winter I like going out looking for bighorn sheep and mountain goats. In the summer I like hiking into the high mountain lakes and streams and go fishing for brook trout.
Here is a site that shows what I am talking about.Backpacking in the Ruby Mountains.com (http://www.geocities.com/bilnv/). There are some updated photos on the Road and Snow Report (http://www.geocities.com/bilnv/weather/road_snow_report.html) page.

A month ago we went to Yosemite National Park in CA. It was a blast. I myself was too much of a chicken **** to actually go hiking. Even my girl went hiking with the rest of the gang. I stayed grounded watching the bikes and trucks,lol. It was fun even though I didn't go hiking. The park was beautiful. Some place we were not able to go to cause the roads were not plowed. Here are some actual pictures of the place. I did not take these pics, but they are still pretty cool. We are thinking of going back there in the summer.
