Inside the tangled roots of the sequoia trees

Inside the dense fog of Puget Sound

On the ancient piney Lewis and Clark trail

Next to erupting Old Faithful in Yellowstone

At the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

In a cafe eating peach pie on Route 66

Underneath the crack of the Liberty Bell

Under the shiny St. Louis arch

Through the historic Alamo where the bullets rang

Near the Florida Everglades where the alligators glide

On top of the clouds of Mt. McKinney

Near the whales in Acadia national park

Over roaring Niagra Falls

Into the center of Death Valley

There, we will meet in the sun and the rain and the fog

There, we will meet and rise together into one people
