    Which are your favourite spots? Doesn't matter if it's for hunting, hiking or whatever..... I have a soft for the Rocky Mountains, Sierra Nevadas, Bitterroots, Cascades, just to mention a few.... :oops:

    I have to admit, the Highlands frickin rock! It blew my mind to be up at 5am hiking outside in daylight. It would have to be a tossup between there and the Rockies. The Blue Ridge Mtns would be in 3rd.

    Jan, between trains, NASCAR, and now the Rockies, I'm beginning to believe you are a closet American :lol:

    Well, I'm mostly the plainsman myself, living here in Vojvodina which is part of Pannonian Plain. I don't know, it's just such lovely site when you look around yourself and see plains as far as eye can reach.
    There are some nice mountauins in Southern Serbia though (Kopaonik being the best known), but my number one destination which I would like to visit some day are Tatra mountauins in Slovakia. Speaking of it, wouldn't mind seeing the Highlands neither.

    Here are few photos of "Vysoke Tatry" in Slovakia...

    Canadian Rockies, right in my back yard. If I was at home right now, I'd post a pic.

    Cascades, the Olympics, and all that mountainous goodness up in NW Washington State. My favorite stomping grounds were up in the Mt. Baker area. Mt. Shuksan is up in the same range as Baker.
