I shoot a 60D and am looking for a wide view lens mainly for landscapes and other outdoor shooting. I am looking at the Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 AT-X116 Pro DX II and the Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM SLR. Both are $739 at Amazon (I am in the U.S.). Any opinions about which way to go?

Tokina, but I will recommend you try the 12-24mm f/4.  It is cheaper than the 11-16mm and has great image quality, see cropped samples below:
