Lake McConaughy

When I was a kid, I worked on a ranch in the Sandhills of Nebraska. The air was clean, the days were long and hard and the sunsets were spectacular. My parents are buried at a tiny cemetary on top of a hill in Hyannis, a small town about 45 miles north of Lake McConaughy. If you drive north from the lake you come upon Arthur, Nebraska. This a town of around 50 people. What makes it unique is that the fence posts leading up to the town are covered with the boots of cowboys. Some of these boots have been hanging there for decades. I'm going back in a couple of weeks. Loved your photos!
