Colorado statehood day, August 1, 2018


From the Walking Tourists, a photograph of a U.S. flag near Colorado Springs, with Pikes Peak in the background. A view from the top of Pikes Peak inspired Kathryn Lee Bates to write a poem, “America the Beautiful.”

Colorado officially joined the Union on August 1, 1876.

Coloradans should fly U.S. flags today in honor of statehood. Colorado was the 38th state admitted to the union.

    I love photos of the flag against natural beauty. We have a very photogenic flag.

    But WordPress screwed up the second photo! thanks for referring to the photo, so I came back to look.
