I have done this a couple other times - pick the best of my trip. I will start with cycling:
Best pavement ride - Moab Canyon Trail, Moab, UT. Rode this trail from downtown Moab to Arches National Park.
Best singletrack ride - J.E.M. Trail, Hurricane, UT
Best National Park scenery - Capitol Reef, Torrey, UT
Best State Park scenery - Valley of Fire, Nevada
Unusual scenery - Goblin Valley State Park, UT
I took a lot of HDR photos during the trip. They are available to viewing at: http://www.tomwinfield.com/vietnam/Echo2012/echo-12.html
