Where to go next?

If any of you have done 5-7 day backpacking trips, I would be interested in where and when. We are always looking for a new place to hike.
1. Trip should be about 55-65 miles long with little to no road walking.
2. Weather needs to be dry 5 out of 7 days (on average)
3. We take our trip in April, May or June every year. Evenings need to be above 45 degrees.
4. We've done the Ozark Highlands Trail and 3 connecting trails in Georgia. We enjoyed both trips, but to be honest, about all we saw was trees. We enjoy some vistas or rock formations or something different and interesting.
5. If you can also get to the camp grounds or vistas by car, its not what we're looking for.
6. It needs to be in the United States.
7. Currently considering a trip here in Michigan along the North Country Trail and through the Pictured Rocks National Park.
We'd appreciate any suggestions you may have.

How about Hell's Canyon Idaho. Take a Jet boat (they take backpackers) and walk back on the national scenic trail.

Dan, how would Hell's canyon be in May. It's so far North, it is probably cold in May?
