I'll do my top 5.

Sunset on the Salvadoran coast. A storm had just passed and the sun came out just at dusk. It was a beautiful sight with the waves crashing on the cliffs. The sky a beautiful orangish/reddish/blue. Everything was incredibly green. Just an absolutely pristine sunset.

The Grand Canyon. Actually, from within the Grand Canyon. We hiked from rim to rim and stopped at this waterfall, we hiked up to near the top of the falls and there was this outcropping where the water was splashing off creating a rainbow and it was actually very lush and green, but with the desert in the background. Just a very beautiful view.

Cinque Tierra (sp?). We hiked up this cliff area to a vineyard and just sat and looked out at the small town. The vineyards, classic buildings, cliffs, and small boats sailing to and from the small harbor was an amazing sight.

Yunnan was a very beautiful province in China. We took a bus from Kunming to Dali and the sights were incredible. The small villages and farms in the mountains was spectacular. 3 hours of absolute stunning scenery.

Calufornia coast just south of San Francisco. A beautiful setting for sunset. We stopped and went out on a pier. Lots of people fishing. The bottom of my top 5. But San Francisco as a whole is a very beautiful city.

The view of Guatemala's Lake Atitlan, from the height of the road descending to the lake. I visited several times, and every time, that sight literally took my breath away. 3 volcanoes at the lake's edge.

Riding a ferry through WA State's San Juan islands, accompanied by dolphins swimming and splashing along with the ferry.

Anywhere in the CA redwoods. Driving down highway 1 from the Bay Area past Halfmoon Bay, with seemingly the length of California's beaches spread out before you.

Hiking up through a forested mountainside in Romania, and emerging onto a high plateau, with spectacular views and the sound of sheep's bells resounding from all directions.

Plitvitsa lakes in Croatia.

The list goes on.
