Which undeveloped area in the US provides the most abundant sustainable, naturally-occurring herbivorous food for people?

Let’s say I want to build a cabin somewhere in the US where I would be most likely to survive living off the fruits, nuts, roots, berries, and vegetables that occur naturally on the land. Where would it be? Rocky Mountains? Great Lakes? Rainy forests of the Pacific Northwest? Fertile lands of California? Tropical Hawaii?

    Many “snowy” regions of the U.S., including the Midwest and Northeast, offer wild berries and other foods to forage. A famous wild food forager in Wisconsin has publicized his experiences gathering many types of wild foods there, such as wild rice. Cherries may be found in northern marshlands and cranberries may be found in bogs. But berries and other edible nuts and plants can be found all over the U.S. For example, the early tribes in California lived off of acorns and wild seeds and plants.
