So what State had the best Creeking in your Opinion?

So I have had this conversation with a few people ever since I started paddling and was just trying to get some discussion on it... What state in the US in your opinion has the MOST, Sickest Badest most Legit and Fun creeking around?

Also what are your favorite runs. Anything from the crystal clear water, Vertical Drops, Boulder Gardens or all the above, it can be Year around paddling or one that only runs after snow melt or during the rainy seasons...
Just Wondering

Anyone who has creeked there will likely tell you California.

what do you mean by best? Longest season?, most multi day runs, most miles of class 5-5+? class 4? most accessible? someplace with a job and boating after work? or the best place to vacation in?
Since Ca. is a very big place with lots of mtns., I'm sure it is first in a lot of those categories and since it rains a lot in Wa. and has sping fed runs I would bet it would be first in a few there too. Idaho is a very big place with lots of mtns. too and Tenn/W. NC have lots of creeks.

More or less your opinion of whats the best?

Best as in your opinion it doesn't matter what or why longest season maybe, variety, scenery, most exciting, different style, cleanest, crystal blue waters vs the norm, best class IV or V's, doesn't matter in your opinion what state has the best creeking and why basically...

Cali hands down the best kayaking in the US, when you name the best runs in the country about half of them are in cali, and that state owns the multiday class 5 runs. The SE does not even get a nod, that place it too much rock and not enough water and the people talk funny.
