  1. hello

    hello ~*resonance*~

    i've traveled a lot around this country, to just about every region.

    but my favorite spots are:
    -Big Sur, California
    -Great Smoky Mountains Nat'l Park, Tennessee/NorthCarolina
    -Ocala Nat'l Forest, Florida
    -Deserts in Arizona, all of them :)
    -Acadia Nat'l Park, Maine
    -Mt. Washington, New Hampshire

    then i've got all my favorite local spots, you know, county parks and wilderness areas and such. many places that i identify with on a deeply spiritual level.

    so what are your favorite outdoor places? be as specific as you like :)

    Red Rocks, CO...used to be like my backyard. I have seen god knows how many shows there. By far he most beautiful place I've seen so far in my life. Eaten way to many mushrooms there too. Proud to say I know every nook and cranney and smoking spot and hiding spot at the entire place. And the colours, the colours duke, the colours!

    West Coast...USA...lol, kinda. More like north Cal, the Oregon Coast line and Western Washingon. Love those old growth forests.

    Canyon Lands, UT...what a magical place. Get a marm weather day, a bunch of friends camping, beer and psychadelics and you can call me good. I love the Arches and the red stone and everything, the night shy, the soft sand. Yey.

    Those are my favorites so far...but still definately looking for those picturesque places every day. Good travels compadres!

    Well...for being a city, Portland, Oregon isn't bad. Sometimes it sucks, but then I go wonder around Hawthorne, etc...I need to go to Saturday market...haven't been there in Ages.

    I love Eastern Oregon--it's all dessert, basically. You can see a *long* ways, lol. Smith Rock is in Central Oregon, I go there with my dad and bro to climb...it's fun. I can see myself wondering around there for a while. :-D

    I also like Red Rocks (in Nevada, just outside of Vegas...). Fly into Vegas, drive to Red Rocks...climbing is GREAT. It's so nice there. Last time we were in Vegas, though, we drove out to Lake Mead--me, my dad, my bro, and Cam. Me and Cam wondered around there for a little bit...it was a blast!!!

    Unfortunately, I haven't been outside as much as I should have been, but my favorite park is Yoyogi Park in Tokyo. It's a great place for runners (although I haven't gone running there), and there are many fun activities there. Also, it's a great place to read a book.

    Southern Utah, including Canyonlands, Zion etc. 5 national parks that are all breathtaking and great for camping


    Smoky Mountains-I just love it down there, great vibe

    Olympic National Park-old growth forest, green green, beaches with giant trees for driftwood, don´t count on a campfire, moss everywhere...especially in the rainforest


    Red River Gorge, KY-a great place towards the east that not many people know about, lots of rock overhangs, beware of deliverance type people

    Grand Tetons, WY-stunning mountain scenery

    That´s cool that you mentioned Old Mans Cave, Wayfarer, I live fairly close to there and it gets overlooked a lot.

    And Spinner, you should really check out Cedar Point in Sandusly, OH....best amusement park ever.

    Cedar point is great, I try to get there every other year or so.

    Top notch, if you dig rollercoasters.

    Nice, i think it´s a great setting for an amusement park. I like how when you are at the top of a rollercoaster hill you can look out over the lake.
    The millenium force is pretty good too, they have so many coasters there now!

    Has anyone ever been to The Cohutta Wilderness in North Ga/Tennesse? it is my fave. so far. The best trail is Jack River Falls, it has a huge waterfall that you can jump off into the river : )
