There's something very special about winter in North America, and the season results in some incredibly beautiful images of cities and iconic landmarks transformed by the extreme weather. Here are ten of our favourite snow-dusted spots...
1. Great Smoky Mountains National Park
The stunning Great Smokies get even more postcard-perfect with a dusting of snow.
2. Yosemite National Park
Glorious all year round, it's hard not to stare in awe at the snow-capped granite peaks towering above Yosemite's sequoias.
3. Jasper National Park
Glaciers and mountains are the perfect setting for some winter active adventures - mountain bike your way through one of Canada's most impressive natural spaces in Jasper National Park.
4. Niagara Falls
During the winter season at Niagara Falls, sheets of ice and snow can be seen over the water. In extremely cold weather, an ice bridge can form - although you're not allowed to walk across it.
5. Grand Canyon National Park
If you've seen the Grand Canyon in all its desert glory in summer, you'll be awed by how the colours and shapes seem to change with a coating of snow.
6. Banff National Park
Beautiful Banff turns up the stunning views another notch during the winter months - an amazing place to discover a real white Christmas!
7. Glacier National Park
If the name 'Glacier' doesn't sum up wintry images...well, just look at that landscape!
8. Yellowstone National Park
Completely transformed in the winter, Yellowstonealso recieves far fewer visitors at this time of year - so beat the crowds and make your own fresh tracks in the snow.
9. Bryce Canyon National Park
The eerie hoodoos of Bryce Canyon become even more impressive topped with white, soft snow.
10. Monument Valley
You'll be set for a truly Western winter in Monument Valley with the backdrop of this movie-set landscape!
