National Parks as Seen from Outer Space

What does Crater Lake National Park look like from outer space? Capitol Reef? Hawaii Volcanoes? Shenandoah? Wrangell-St. Elias? Mount Rainier? Death Valley? Denali? Grand Canyon?

For the answers, Wired magazine assembled a gallery of images recorded by NASA and other astronomical sources to offer us a fascinating glimpse of 20 national parks from a nonterrestrial perspective.

I especially like the view of the Tetons and the extra-wide-angle look at Bryce Canyon and Zion. Which far-out view appeals most to you?
