The top of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park. I was lucky to live there for a year when in my early 20s, and hiked to the top of Half Dome many times.

I've been there and it truly is an amazing place. To be honest this picture doesn't even do justice to what I experienced there. Glacier National Park, Montana... stunning! =)
