A slightly different view of the Great Plains

Not all building out on the Great Plains are old and run down. This is just a snapshot of a well cared for one room church in Platte County Nebraska. Gruetli E & R church was established in 1874 by the local farmers who immigrated from Switzerland. It's still in use during the summer months.

Hey Jim,

Could we get a picture with the Big Dog on the porch of that place...I think the contrast in colors would have an amazing affect....

I'm not sure the concrete is rated for that sort of fuel load.

That lake keeps getting deeper and deeper.
I remember as a kid there use to be a water level marker in the lake. It towered over the water level by atleast 20 feet. The marker showed the water level and the year that it was measured. Now that marker would be alteast 20 feet below the water level.

This is the definition from wikipedia. It's on the web, it must be true .

Fantastic thread! I think you guys would enjoy an essay, entitled "Horizontal Grandeur" but the Minnesota writer, Bill Holm.

Here's the first paragraph to whet your appetite:

For years I carried on a not-so-jovial argument with several friends who are north-woods types. They carted me out into the forests of northern Wisconsin or Minnesota, expected me to exclaim enthusiastically on the splendid landscape. “Looks fine,” I’d say, “but there’s too damn many trees, and they’re all alike. If they’d cut down twenty miles or so on either side of the road, the flowers could grow, you could see the sky, and find out what the real scenery is like.” Invariably, this provoked groans of disbelief that anyone could be insensitive enough to prefer dry, harsh, treeless prairies. There, a man is the tallest thing for miles around; a few lonesome cottonwoods stand with leaves shivering by a muddy creek; sky is large and readable as a Bible for the blind. The old farmers say you can see weather coming at you, not like woods, where it sneaks up and takes you by surprise.

Link to the entire essay:
