Oh no, forgot the photo
The first thing I thought of as I was driving back from Alliance to the hotel last night, was “oh no, I forgot to get a photo with the club.” I guess that just means I’ll need to make a return trip. I plan to do that anyway. Stay tuned to my blog, and you’ll all see why someday soon.
Day one took me through 10 counties. Beginning in my home county of Buffalo and driving west along I-80 to Ogallala where I turned north towards Bridgeport and then on to Alliance in Box Butte County. It’s really amazing the beauty of Nebraska. From the far west to the Missouri River in the east, it is so completely different. When you ask someone about Nebraska, the first thing they might say is “corn”, or “cows”. But rarely do they mention the beautiful grasslands of the Sandhills, the bluffs of the northwestern plains, or the pine vistas of the Niobrara River. And that’s just a snippet. I can’t wait to tell you more, and share pictures.
Speaking of the sandhills, returning to North Platte, I took a different route along Highway 2 through the Sandhills. I couldn’t help to notice all the water, and wondered if this was normal, or if this was due to all the rain we have received this spring. Last night was another night of torrential rain across Nebraska, we don’t need any more water.
So with 10 of 93 counties checked off my list, we continue down the road. Today we are headed to Nebraska’s “Hot Spot”, McCook. For some reason, they always seem to be the hottest place in Nebraska. I’ll have to ask them about that and share it here tomorrow.
See you soon.
