I have to agree with Grinch, on the first page of this thread.  The view from Image Lakes's toilet is one of the best that there is, at least that I have seen in my many excursions.

Here's an article with some more toilet views from around the world.  Even though it's a British paper an image from Washington made the list!  One from "Boston Bay" in the North Cascades.  doh.gif  embarassedlaugh.gif

Loos with views!

Comrades,

Near Gnome Tarn in the Enchantments is a pit box with a full view of Prussik.  With binos you could watch the climbers.  And, best of all, the goats don't mess with the deuce, so they're not standing two feet next to you with those beady black eyes.

Sorry if this has been posted, I didn't read the whole thread. Here is the view from the toilet at the hiker's camp at Image Lake that a couple people have mentioned in this thread.

Another vote for the privy at Image Lake. It was partly cloudy at the time, so it made for quite the interesting view of Glacier Peak.

Aesthetically, the privy at the North Fork Sol Duc Shelter is beautifully designed and built.

I was seriously disappointed when I reached the top of WHitney only to find that the 360 dgree open air toilet had been removed. It was the highest toilet in the US.

The toilet down below in Crabtree Meadows was pretty nice though.

Here's a shot from a few weeks ago while 3 friends and I were in the backcountry of Glacier NP in Montana.  This is the campsite at Boulder Pass, way up in the northside of the Park past Polebridge.  As you can see you are quite exposed, but the views while seated were spectacular!!  I put the camera on a big rock nearby and set the self-timer for 10 seconds.  Barely made it back to the seat by the time the shutter released.

Boulder Pass (elev 7,470 feet) backcountry toilet.  Kintla Peak (elev 10,101 feet) shown on the right.

My personal favorite is at Cradle Lake in the ALWA with a great up close and personal view of the North side of Harding Mt.

I vote for the composte toilet at Sahale Glacier camp. I can't find my photo of the actual toilet, but the view is something like this:
