The United States of America.

A huge country.

A magnificent country with a geographical smorgasbord that includes some incredible natural wonders.

Every state has some awesome photo opportunities and thanks to the travel team at CNN I can bring you one natural wonder from every state you should see.

1. Alabama

Little River Canyon National Preserve

Alabama

Little River has carved out one of the deepest canyons east of the Mississippi, and its whitewater rapids have become a mecca for rafters and kayakers.

For people not interested in water sports, take in Little River Falls from the shore or boardwalk.

2. Alaska

Glacier Bay National Park

Alaska

While many of Alaska’s glaciers are retreating, the Johns Hopkins and Margerie Glaciers are actually advancing.

Take in these glacial wonders by sea kayak or a flightseeing exhibition, where you may also see wildlife like bears and moose.

3. Arizona

The Grand Canyon

Grand Canyon National Park, geographical feature, landform, canyon, badlands,

This 277-mile gorge is a mile deep and one of the world’s largest canyons.

The colorful carved canyon walls are best seen from Yaki Point at the south rim.2

Hikers can take a six mile trail that descends 4,860 feet into the canyon.

4. Arkansas

Crater of Diamonds State Park

Arkansas

An ancient eruption littered the area with diamonds, and you can actually hunt for them within the 37 acres search field and keep whatever you find!

U.S.’s largest diamond, the Uncle Sam, was unearthed here.

5. California

Redwood National Park

California

You’ll feel like a dwarf among giants as you drive or walk though forests of trees that can reach 300 feet into the air, some of which have been around for 2,000 years.

6. Colorado

Rocky Mountain National Park

Colorado

In the U.S.’s highest park, altitudes range from 7,500 to 14,000 feet.

There are 350 trails throughout the park, some leading you up to tundra areas where few plants grow but animals roam freely.

More experienced hikers can head to Flattop Mountain or Estes Cone, both over 11,000 feet.
