Does SEKI count? I don't think parks are the same as official wilderness area designation....but that's just me nitpicking!

For memories of the times spent there....Yolla Bolly Wilderness!

For beauty and the rest...John Muir!

On forest service land: Ansel Adams. The Ritter Range is one of those places I never stop going to. One of those places you take friends when you want to REALLY show off the Sierras.

In a national park: Kings Canyon. No competition here at all. If you're scratching your head at this, you have probably not been more than a day in from the west side. You need to go in deeper. This park requires a longer approach to get to the really knock-your-socks-off stuff.

It's kinda like trying to pick your favorite song or band. It depends upon the time and the moment at hand, because there are so many that are just flat out fantastic!. For me at the end of the day, the John Muir Wilderness will always be at or near the top. Started there in the 70's and have been going back ever since.
If you stand in the light, you get the feel of the night, and the music that plays in your ear......
In your mind you can hear, a voice so sweet and clear, and the music that plays in your head......
As it flows up from the ground, taking all that hear the sound, close your eyes, it’s about to begin.

"Those of us who have been drawn to the Sierra for years and decades understand her magnetic draw on our souls, the beck and call at the beginning of each and every season, the rejuvenating experience one feels after each and every trip no matter how difficult" Maverick, High Sierra Topix

Not sure how I missed this, thanks for the tagline troutdog.

I too fall into the "it's all good" category for wilderness. If I had to pick just one, it would likely be Kings Canyon.
