America the Beautiful
In 1893, Katharine Lee Bates, long-time professor at Wellesley College in Massachusetts, was lecturing at the summer session at Colorado College. During her visit she joined an expedition to the summit of Pikes Peak in a private wagon. Electrified by the beauty she saw atop Pikes Peak she wrote the poem that later became known as "America the Beautiful."
