Happy Birthday, America
O beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Purple Mountain MajestyThe setting sun bathes the snow-topped Tetons and the clouds blanketing them with warm color. The Teton River, not yet frozen, meanders through farmland in the Teton Valley. (Near Tetonia, Idaho)
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee
The ChapelThe Chapel of the Transfiguration is sited - appropriately - beneath the Cathedral Peaks. The log structure was built in the 1920s and placed on the national register of historic places in 1980. (Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming)
And crown thy good with brotherhood,
Independence DayFireworks explode behind Portsmouth, New Hampshire's landmark North Church in celebration of Independence Day.
"America the Beautiful"
Lyric - Katharine Lee Bates
