Above the fruited Plain....

America the Beautiful  - Words by Katharine Lee Bates in 1913

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

Continuing my photo essay from our cross-country road trip....


Above the fruited plain......

Crossing South Dakota in the fall.

The patterned fields captured our eye over and over again.  America is a vast land rich in what is produces. I found it beautiful. And took many photographs!
