Pretty places

The pictures sold me! Of course I've only been to The Grand Canyon, which was beautiful. And I've never heard of  Plitvice Lakes National Park, but it can easily be added to my list. The last is my favorite how awesome would it be to see those?!

From World's Prettiest Places:
First off, not every pick on our list is indeed a "place," per se. One is actually a scientific phenomenon, while another is considered a massive living organism home to more than 1,500 fish species and nearly 3,000 individual coral reefs. Several are wide-open spaces, but a few are brick-and- mortar sites built for kings (and in one case, a queen). Three have been included on the listing of the Seven Natural Wonders; three were also selected for the listing of the New 7 Wonders of the World. But no matter how you slice and dice them, all 10 have something important in common: Sometimes, it is all about what pleases the eye. Here's our list of the World's Prettiest Places.
