The most beautiful places I've backpacked, so far, are Sierra,... Colorado, especially the Maroon Bells 4 Pass Loop, ....Bridger Wilderness, Wind River Range....Iceland's Laugavegur was sweet.

For me, mountain views with sweeping landscapes can't be beat.

Switzerland, Germany, and Austria are wonderful, but have only done 'stealth backpacking', hut hiking is more the thing there.

But when I start to daydream, it's definitely Sierra and Bridger Wilderness.

I do have to give a shout-out to the Grayson Highlands balds in the Blue Ridge of VA for absolutely fantastic views, especially for the East Coast, plus it's someplace I can actually drive to in less than a day.

Big oops, almost forgot the Grand Canyon, to say it's jaw dropping just doesn't do it justice!  That's another place I keep going back to (how did I almost forget?)
