Hawaii..

Beautiful place. Great weather year round.

Used to ride the east and south side trails on Oahu in the 80's, when I wasn't surfing or climbing extinct volcanoes.
Rocky, due to all the volcanic soil. Almost like riding on gravel. Ate tires up.
Taking a spill wasn't an option.

Haven't been back since. 
The center of the island is rugged mountains and peaks. Choked with vegetation, jagged peaks and 1000 foot drops. Hiking there is not for the faint hearted. The volcanic rock cuts so you need a good pair of leather gloves.
I'm sure a lot has changed. More trail.

Someplace outside Santa Fe New Mexico.  Climbed up to a meadow loaded with butterflies.  Very surreal.  Hit a downhill that had us doing multiple high speed stream crossings.


Worst out of state ride was Las Vegas.  Too much sand and say too many flats from cactus needles.
