Purple mountain majesties

For Purple Mountain Majesties
Dunes shifting below
Purple mountain majesties

Enroute to Piñon Flats Campground
Great Sand Dunes National Park
Colorado, United States of America

Taken during travels, 2009

For those of you unfamiliar with the USA’s secondary national anthem:

America the Beautiful
Words by Katharine Lee Bates,
Melody by Samuel Ward

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed her grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
