Where is the most beautiful place you've jumped? Can't Post

Short but sweet question I know....

Most of the time my head's up concentrating on the 4-way - but on the rare occasions that I jump by myself and get to look around (whilst keeping a firm check on my altitude - before someone asks why I'm looking at the world) I'm amazed at how beautiful the world can be from the air...Which places have taken your breath away and made you think WOW?

Mount Vernon WA...

Right at the top of Puget Sound in the Skagit River Delta... You can see all the way over to the Straits of Juan deFuca... see Victoria BC on Vancouver Island... and to the East is the North Cascades National Park.. with Mt Baker a 10,700 ft snow covered volcano just 25 miles away to the NE.


Sunsets... unbieliveable

Maybe Orofino, Idaho. Deep canyon, fast river, tiny airport.

I haven't been too many places, but Skydive Monterey Bay in CA has a nice view when the weather is good.

Vichy in France at the Espace boogie, and also Spa in Belgium are pretty stunning. Eloy at sunset is def worth a look too.

I agree SMB was one of the nicer places I've jumped. I also liked Skydive Oregon. The forest covered ground was cool and it was neat to see Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Hood in the background.

I second that. Good views from the air AND the ground. Loved waking up to the foggy sunrise in the mountains. I took the attached pic through my open tent door before crawling back into my sleeping bag to wait for it to warm up another 20 degrees.

Our old dz at Woodcock, British Columbia. An old WW2 airstrip on the banks of the mighty Skeena River, right next to the 10,000 ft. high Seven Sisters Range.

Another place that comes to mind is St. Francois on the island of Guadeloupe.
