After returning from my trip to SE Asia, I have thought about some of the great views I have experienced around the world, and here at home. Each of us has a favorite, or favorites. Many times, it centers on lakes, mountains, oceans, or our great National Parks.
Here is a list from Travel and Leisure, just to get the conversation started. I do not agree with many of them, but here goes:
Bryce Canyon, Utah (good choice)
The Golden Gate Bridge
The National Mall, Washington, DC
Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii
Portland Head Lighthouse, Maine
Grand Teton, Wyoming
Grand Canyon, Arizona
Glacier Point, Yosemite NP
Badlands NP, South Dakota
Big Sur, California
Crater Lake NP, Oregon
Denali NP, Alaska (another good choice)
Manhattan Skyline, New York
Glacier NP, Montana
Cliff Walk, Newport, Rhode Island
360 Chicago, Illinois
Lookout Ledge, New Hampshire
Personally, I think they left a few out. I would add:
Lake Tahoe, California (and Nevada)
Sedona Red Rocks, Arizona
Sunset Beach, Haleiwa,HI
Arches National Park, Utah
Seventeen Mile Drive, Pebble Beach, CA
Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC
Waimea Canyon, Kauai, Hawaii
Wrigley or Fenway?
Mount Rainier, Washington
Sunset on any beach!
Sunrise on any mountain top!
Carneros Region, Napa Valley, CA
Honolua Beach, Maui
Antelope Canyon, Page, AZ
