August 1st is COLORADO Day

When Katharine Bates placed pen on paper, surely she had my beautiful home state in mind.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
Grand Junction -  Oct 99
For amber waves of grain,
Grand Mesa -   Snow Trees,   Oct 02
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
Jumbo Lake
From sea to shining sea!
Happy Birthday, Colorado!
