Sweitzer Lake StoryWalk®
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until August 31, 2019
The July-August story at Sweitzer Lake State Park is America the Beautiful written by Katharine Lee Bates and Illustrated by Chris Gall. From his unique perspective as the great, great grandnephew of “America the Beautiful” writer, Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall transforms this beloved patriotic song into monumental works of art–from purple mountain majesties to gleaming alabaster cities. Honoring his ancestry and national pride, Gall pairs the beautiful lyrics with striking illustrations of notable American images such as Pike’s Peak, the Tuskgee Airmen, and firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero.
