Hiking the area around muir woods and mount tamalpais in the Marin County area north of san francisco and the trails along the edge of the sea from the base of the golden gate bridge down to and past the sutro baths also offer some spectacular views.
Hiking in 40 below weather, and 8 to 10 feet of snow, does sound like a great time.

Were you forced to by gun point?

Just curious. What in the hell were you thinking?

Didn't know NH even go that cold.

I look to the present moment because that's where I live my life.

Re: Favorite Hiking Trails

Up at elevation it sure as heck does. Minus 47 is the record.

Its quiet and very serene, which is hard to come by on some of the busier trails. Fresh water is also readily available at your hiking a half mile round trip for a pot o' water. Dish up some of the snow and git going.

Me and three others used to do the hikes in jan/feb on a regular basis, so at least I wasnt the only idiot!

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Re: Favorite Hiking Trails

Well, there are plenty good hiking trails here in northern CA for sure. I did like hiking in the Sabino Canyon in Tucson, AZ. I loved hiking in the Alps (Tour du Mont Blanc) last summer and this summer it will be the Dolomiti in Italy. Switzerland is gorgeous, especially the Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald areas. Around Zermatt (Matterhorn) is nice, too. Mountains near Sand Diego were nice, as well as the Devil's Punch Bowl in the San Gabriel's in Los Angeles. I've also done somenice hiking near Yellow Springs, OH, and an intersting hike along the Gulf of Mexico in FL.

Lots of options!

The Bruce Trail in Southern Ontario follows the Niagara Escarpment all the way north to Tobermory.

Take the Chi-Chi-Mon ferry across to Manitoulin Island.

The Zipper's brother is a dive-master in Tobermory. Lot's of wrecks in crystal clear water to explore!
