Well Alaska is the first thing that comes to mind. Also the Rockies, Hawaii in the tropical type of way. The US has many areas like that. Have you ever looked at a map and see how HUGE Alaska is. What do you think it looks like?

Yes, the inland passage to Alaska.

Bring a motorsailer and spend several yrs exploring.

motorsailer - Google Search

When living in the Canadian 'Gulf Islands' I met lots of folks from UK / Scandinavia who were 'fulltime motorsailers' for yrs in the inland passage area. They came a bit south for winter, but still north of USA.

Or you can also get a job on a fishing boat and see much of this. One of my kids did that for a few yrs. Several friends do it annually. They make ~ $30k to $50k in 6 wks and take the rest of the yr off. Not a bad gig. Tough and LONG days, but can you imagine how nice it is to have 10 months off / yr!

You want to see *exactly* that kind of view, or do you just mean *extremely scenic views*, and used the link as *an example* ?

I can think of many places *all over the USA* that will meet *extremely scenic views*.

I *googled* for *extremely scenic views* and got *About 10,100,000 results*

While few places in the US offer such steep fjords and dramatic mountains to ocean scenery, there are some places which offer similar but different scenery, beautiful in its own right. In addition to those alread listed, I'll add:

San Juan Islands, WA

Lake Chelan, WA

Jenny Lake, Grand Teton NP, WY

Thanks guys for your replies. I actually meant the views as much similar to the one I posted as possible. I understand that there are lots of different types of extremely scenic views in USA but, you know, those fjords, green mountains and rivers are just amazing altogether. I hope I could find something like that in US.
