    Yeah, that looks amazingly beautiful but I would not pick the snow as my favorite.  (Why I moved from VT to CA when I was 18. )

    Hmm... not a super snow fan either. But just seems to be one of those magical places. A small village surrounded by nothing. Would have loved to have visited. But whatever - I go to Iceland when Pearl Jam goes there.

    Heres my favorite thanks to dealing with all you f’ers all the time! ;)

    My current spot and one of my favorite bioregions:

    The current is absolutely my favorite spot, as well.

    California or Cascadia seem to be my two favorites from where I have been.  Had to look up Bioregions to check out mapping.

    California is tough to top.  It has everything -- ocean, forest, desert, mountains...no rainforest, I guess.


    We're going to Yosemite next week- hopefully early enough to avoid the worse of the crowds.
    Such an amazing place.  (And pictures really do it little justice, most times..)  Enjoy it!
    Thanks!  Yeah for sure- a "must see"!

    My wife likes Ocean City best.  Kids like Wildwood best.  I don't care so long as I have an umbrella above me and can have a beer/read a book.

    Point Pleasant for you?  I forget...

    I love my bioregion because my bioregion is all I know.
    Im honestly not very well traveled but feel fortunate in the area of Michigan I live in.
    Some pics to share of my favorite hiking trails. These are all on the dunes of Lake Michigan.
    The pic with the road is just in the city. These are just from last couple of weeks, it’s early so not very green yet. Ill post more pics as I take them over the summer.

    Michigan is a beautiful State.  I got a cousin and Aunt that live in Northern Michigan, does not get much better than that...

    The UP is fantastic.

    Great pics.

    Michigan is one of my favourite states.  You cannot judge Michigan on Detroit alone (however, even Detroit is coming back to life).

    Have yet to go to Avon.  Red Bank was one of the areas my wife wanted to buy in when we first moved back.  I wanted to be a Philly burb vs. a NYC burb.
    Both nice places, I am sure.

    Given where I live, most of my hiking is in coniferous forests, so it's a real treat to see a deciduous forest. I'd love to be walking through those woods (even more so once they are in leaf).

    My faves are temperate rain forests (as found up the coast of BC), as well as any major mountain range, such as the Rocky Mountains or the Swiss Alps, et al.
    FWIW, this thread really belongs in the AET. I get why it was posted here, but....

    I forgot I went to the Joe for Outlaw music Festival a few yrs. back as well. That was fun. Hopefully my first time at LCA will be for PJ. Not sure who else I would want or be able to see there. Tool or Bruce maybe. Most bands I’m into play the Fox or the other smaller venues. DTE Theater outside venue is a decent venue but again like the Palace it’s outside the city not really by anything.

    Nice!  There was a wildlife preserve we visited years ago while passing through MI.  I'd have to look it up but I think it was near there.  Beautiful part of the country!

    And I learned something new-- Laurentia!

    Between the top and the bottom you go through 7 different climate zones.
    Used to guide the mule rides on the north rim summer 99.  
    On the top 9000 ft elevation it's like fall all summer. The bottom 200 ft is the same temperature as Phoenix pretty much.  100+ during the summer.  Doesn't pay much by best job I ever had. Actually the funnest job I ever had. Got to ride down and up it every day for a whole summer.
