Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming: Jackson Lake
If you are driving in Grand Teton National Park, head up for the road for Signal Mountain. Once you reach the top, get out a walk a little on the trail ... and then walk a little more south on an area that obviously has been trampled down a bit by the tourists. We're only talking 50 feet, and it's quite safe. Then look to the west.
Or, just look at the picture above. Better in person, but still breathtaking.
Jackson Lake takes up a good chuck of the northern part of the park. It was carved out by glaciers. In a park filled with great views, this was my favorite.
