3. Grand Teton National Park
There is no better view of the Rockies than in the Grand Teton's. From the valley floor looking east there are many great pull offs for your car, camper, or van to stop, open the back hatch, and enjoy some coffee. One of my favorites is the Schwabacher road pull off which goes down along the Snake River. Afterwards head up Jackson Lake and Colter Bay to enjoy beautiful views and enjoy a hike. Teton is full of many great views and places to enjoy a morning cup of coffee.
2. Olympic National Park
The western peninsula of Washington state is home to a large temperate rainforest which has one of my favorite National Parks - Olympic. I've enjoyed coffee here from mountain peaks, down to the rocky ocean beaches. The variety of beauty in Olympic makes it the perfect place to stop and soak in the surroundings. Plus those chilly wet mornings require something to keep your hands warm, so brew up a cup and enjoy the majestic beauty of one of the USA's most beautiful parks.
1. Denali National Park
While working in the wilderness of Denali I had a tradition with my old boss called "tundra coffee". Every afternoon we took a break to soak in the surroundings and enjoy the solitude of nature with a cup of coffee. While enjoying tundra coffee I've watched herds of Caribou browse for food, Grizzly bears meander across the open landscapes and Long-tailed Jaegers hunting for voles. Denali, with its beautiful mountains and charismatic animals is by far the best place to enjoy some wilderness coffee.
