First, just a striking view of the Capitol Reef National Park from space. The picture below is labeled; the linked picture is bigger and isn't labeled. The link goes to the explanatory article.
Big Thomson Mesa, Capitol Reef National Park, Utah
Second, a couple of amazing photos from the Oasis Room in the unreal Lechuguilla Cave, Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Somewhere out there there's a 360-degree picture of this room. (Someone find it, post the link here.) There's more pictures at the link.
