    10. SUNRISE AT THE NORTH RIM
    10. SUNRISE AT THE NORTH RIM
    The Grand Canyon

    It’s an old question: Which is more beautiful, the North Rim or the South Rim? @jemerling loves both for different reasons. At the North Rim, she sat with a family from Sweden and listened as the parents spoke about how important it was that their children see the sun rise over the Grand Canyon. As the kids huddled under blankets, pushing through sleepiness and braving the cold, the glowing sun transformed the canyon from black to purple to pink to orange right before their eyes.

    Yellowstone National Park

    When visiting Yellowstone, consider waking up early to walk through Norris Geyser Basin. The steam is much more dramatic in the early sun and there are far fewer crowds—you might even have the place to yourself.
