America the Beautiful in Joshua Tree National Park

When I took this photo at sunset in Joshua Tree National Park, immediately the song America the Beautiful came to mind while watching another spectator of the beautiful park driving towards me. "This land is your land, this land is my land From California to the New York Island, From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters, This land was made for you and me. As I went walking that ribbon of highway And saw above me that endless skyway, And saw below me the golden valley, I said: This land was made for you and me."
