Whenever someone asks me, “What’s your favorite trip?”, I can never come up with just one answer. I’ve had the good fortune to have taken many amazing adventures over the years. But I have assembled a list of my 10 all-time favorites (so far). Check out this photo gallery of selected images from several of those trips, including hiking and backpacking from the Grand Canyon and Glacier national parks to the John Muir Trail and Patagonia (lead photo, above).

After scrolling through the gallery below, click over to my story listing all 10 (plus a bonus list of trips that nearly made that top 10), with links to the stories about each trip for more photos and tips on planning each one yourself.

And if you’re hungry for more ideas, click over to my All Trips page, where you’ll find all of my stories about outdoor adventures at The Big Outside organized on pages according to categories like trips by state, family adventures, national park adventures, and international trips.

    Your top ten list is a pipe dream list for many! Seven days JMT hike is something impressive.

      Thanks Shawn. Just start ticking off your dream trips one at a time.

        Thanks for the inspiration! Already have my own list of trails underway. None in North America yet, I tend to lean towards ancient culture routes in Europe.

          I imagine that’s a good list, too.
