What iconic images say "America" to you?
I've put a slide show of pictures that almost capture what I see when I think of our country. But it's almost impossible for me to distill what America means in just a few images. Even as I write this introduction I'm thinking of more images I wish I'd included. So consider this slide show incomplete. America will always be too big, ambitious, multifaceted, diverse, and complex to boil down to just a handful of pictures. But it's still fun to share a few images with each other.

Here's my mosaic of America. What does yours look like? Happy Memorial Day weekend!
