So far my wife and I have hiked in 6 states. Missouri (our home state -NE MO- with tons of day hikes), Illinois ( a few times), Wisconsin (3 trips), Michigan, Minnesota and Colorado. Except for Colorado we tend to go to the same general areas. Colorado was the exception and Calif was last year. Haven't ruled out Tenn or Ark yet this year. But, for now, it's 6. How about you?

2012 Calendar Year: New York, New Hampshire, and Colorado. Going back 12 months, add Wisconsin.

Add Pennsylvania if you count walking 3/4 mile between terminals at PHL.

2012?

Wisconsin, Iowa, Washington.  I'm trying to remember properly, but I don't think we made it to Minnesota this year, and didn't get out for any hikes back east, unless you count wandering around Willamsburg, VA for a day.

If we are counting dayhikes of any length. . .
CA
AZ
NM
CO
UT
WY
I think that's it.

Mostly I hike (and do everything else) in a state of confusion.

ETA: oh, yeah.  And Hawaii.  How could I forget--heck, we even hiked Hawaii in the dark in the rain.

Go back 12 months and we can add WA, though we might not have gotten beyond walks/runs in the park last Xmas.

PG may mark the first trip that I wasn't the drunkest guy there. I really didn't expect that. Thanks, LB.  :D

I guess it kinda depends on what we are calling a hike. I've only tented in CO this year. I've day hiked in GA and all touching states (and N. Carolina) this year.
If sleeping in a hotel and hiking city trails count I would have to look through my black book of scat I had to do this year.
