Here's a photo from my summer roadtrip from Seattle to Salt Lake. This was taken in the Palouse from Steptoe Butte State Park in eastern Washington. I only got to spend one sunset here and I really want to go back. There is just so much potential here.
Zion National Park near the peak of fall is quite a spectacle. This classic view gives an idea of what a visitor to the park will experience. I remember well my first visit to the park 5 years ago, I had never been so taken back by a landscape.
The famous Watchman peak can be seen in distance on the left, as the Virgin river, the creator of the canyon, continues to sculpt the landscape.

The following morning and a little further upstream:
On a cool June day in Grand Teton National Park, heavy cloud cover obscured the magnificent peaks of the range. While on a short day hike, I kept my eyes towards them, regardless of the clouds. Diffused light combined with sporadic breaks in the clouds created a wonderful effect on the rough and jagged rock, contrasted with the bright, smooth snow.
