California Route 1 is great, but it doesn't end in San Francisco. It goes much further north through redwood country. You can't exclude that region when discussing natural beauty.

My personal favorite 3:
1. Utah 12 through Capital Reef
2. Alaska's Seward Highway
3. US-50 in Nevada aka the Loneliest Road in America (it is a long stretch of nothingness, but there are scenic views here and there.
