Which are the best places to visit here in the US for an outdoor enthusiast?

I would go to Prairie State Park in Northern California to see part of the redwoods. It's sort of remote on the North Coast area, south of Eureka and Arcata. If you go, I highly recommend the Fern Canyon trail. Round trip it's about 9 miles of hiking from the trail head, but if you start at the beach end instead of the opposite one at the trail head, you can hike 1/2 as far as you want to, then turn around and follow the trail back to the beach. Near the beach is the actual fern canyon with ferns growing on both sides of a 60 foot canyon that surrounds a little creek. And beware of the Roosevelt elk that hang out around the beach area at the opening entrance to the state park, although they are behind a wood fence near the entrance. They can be pretty territorial and if you get too close, aggressive. I hope you will see this park. It is so beautiful, it is beyond description.

Isle Royal in the UP of Michigan has some amazing hiking trails. The scenery and the wildlife are outstanding. Moose, wolves... and you're surrounded by Lake Superior. Here is a link... http://www.gorp.com/parks-guide/isle-royale-national-park-outdoor-pp2-guide-cid9101.html Even though they claim the nearest airport is Detroit, they're full of it. Sault Ste. Marie airport is much closer. Also, here is a link from the National Park Service: http://www.nps.gov/isro/index.htm

Not inside. Outdoors is incredibly vague. Honestly, someone who enjoys the outdoors and claim to be an enthusiast could be referring to poolside at a hotel, the concrete in a city, a suburban backyard, or whatever. In truth, any outdoors enthusiast isn't sitting on the internet asking about places to go. If you really want to be outdoors, go there and honestly seek out the place that suits you best. Otherwise, your a tourist with a stupid hat on.
You can find beauty anywhere you go.
