Great Shot...........Nice and green this time of year..........
Ellsworth county, Kansas, along the Smoky Hill River.
As I rode through Western Nebraska this weekend and enjoyed all the sights and sounds. I also came across some forgotten towns. It's hard to imagine that these towns were once vibrant and full of life. So I got to thinking with this being Memorial Day Weekend, we should remember those towns that were the backbone of what is now this great country also.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
A couple from the Loess Hills, looking west towards the Missouri River and Nebraska.
For some reason, I really like this shot
Saturday, I finally ran down to Scott State Park to check it out. Neat little lake I'll have to get back to when it's not so crowded - being the only state park in the far western part of Kansas, it was jam packed with families for the holiday weekend. Ugh.
Anyway - I also ran out to Monument Rocks for the first time. Very neat formation out in the middle of the prairie.
Dropping into the Smoky Hill River valley was very impressive.
We know you took more than one picture.........Lets see a few more.....
Ah.... the plains states....
hey Look! Corn!
Jack checks the GPS.... turn left at the corn field...
Hey what's that under the coffee pot....
Oh yeah.... It's CORN!
This thread has gotten corny lately.
Nice to see a few corn pictures once in a while...
Looks like Jack had his gps tracking down I-80 thru Omaha and west thru Lincoln on the Eastern Edge of the Great Plains. Hard to really get the feel of the plains looking thru the wing window of a cage on the slab.
Having traveled throughout the Great Plains for many years its hard to recollect seeing much corn. In fact, the corn you will see is being grown on the eastern edge of the region. Further to the East, in states like Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota is where you might go to see the real Corn Country.
The formations are at the bottom of the hill the bigger one is on the left side of the road or to the south about a hundred yards, the smaller is on the right side.
Those pictures actually make me feel good, they're so good. Thanks, Sodbuster.
Klay, I am glad you enjoyed them! The thing that makes me feel good about those pics is how they show that even as fast as this old world seems to turn with change anymore, some things remain close to unchanged.
Thats a great pic. Not photoshopped to some unnatural hell.
Today on the Great Plains of North Central Nebraska
Four Inch Rain Earlier in the morning made these roads a no go..
Still Found some Pictures..
Sweet Clover in Bloom, fresh air as far as the eye could see..
That almost looks good enough for a desktop background.
If only I'd had your Canon and that fancy lens.....
