365_National_Pride[2009]
This is one of the many beautiful views from the summit of Pikes Peak. It's the easternmost 14,000 foot peak in the U.S. and was the inspiration for "America the Beautiful." After riding a carriage to the summit of the mountain, Katharine Lee Bates was inspired by the view and wrote the lyrics to the song in her hotel room.
