Trailtrodder, what a great story! I'm a big hiker, too (big as in enthusiastic, lol). My sister and I recently did a lot of awesome trails in the Columbia River/Gorge area in Washington and Oregon. Beautiful scenery and flowers galore. We also did a week of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park (in the Estes Park area) last year, and it was absolutely stellar. I live in New England, and there are tons of places to hike in just about every state. You can get the mountains, the woods and the beach all in one in Acadia National Park in Maine. Vermont and New Hampshire have some gorgeous areas (in many of the ski resort towns) that offer some spectacular views. I recently hiked up Mount Kearsarge in New Hampshire. A total 360 view. It was awesome!
I have never really done any prairie hiking, but now I'm definitely curious. What places would you recommend?
