It's difficult to capture the majesty of Glacier National Park in words. Snowcapped peaks tower over glassy lakes and dense forests creating a scene so idyllic it would be better suited for an art gallery. The wild landscape offers something for everyone, and you won't be able to help stopping every few minutes to pinch yourself as you look around.

4. Zion National Park

There's no question that Utah is home to some of the most unique natural landscapes in the country. And its crowning jewel has to be Zion. Creamy red and pink sandstone cliffs and narrow slot canyons decorate this park with dramatic features. But its softer side is just as breathtaking, with wildflower meadows and still, starry skies that stretch towards infinity.
