    Lets see:

    The Chehalem Ridge, Goat Mtn, Mt Hood NF, The Coast Range, the Willamette Valley nooks and corners, sw Washington, etc.

    Guess what I am saying is 'just stick a pin at random into a map' and go check it out.

    My criteria is anyplace I haven't been.

    I do the same as Toy Man. I spend some time looking at maps and google earth to find places to check out. If I haven't been there all the better.

    That's what I usually do and have quite a few spots to check out but was just hoping for some sharing of ideas with pictures of some favorite trails or interesting spots to go checkout
