    Grand Canyon, Arizona

    Carved over centuries by the Colorado River, Arizona's Grand Canyon is one of the most visited spots in America. What many don't know is that instead of heading to the South Rim, where you'll meet with hoardes of other visitors, a trip to the North Rim will afford you peaceful views such as this one.

    This stunning Canadian waterfall sits in Jasper National Park and, whilst it's neither the widest nor the tallest in the Rockies, it's by far the most powerful.

    Cenotes, Yucatan

    Even on the briefest of trips to Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, you'll hear the word cenote. The area, which covers three Mexican states, is full of these natural wells which appear at random on, or just below, the surface of the Earth.

    Sat within the bounds of Yosemite National Park, this granite dome is one of the most distinctive sites in California. The day hike to its peak is considered one of the most challenging in the park.
