There are many gorgeous vistas in the natural world, but some of them get elevated by a reputation to which they will never be able to live up. Sure, they might be pretty to look at, but you have to deal with the outrageous crowds. Wouldn’t it be easier to just look at a picture online?
1 of 10 1. The Grand Canyon
