    After more than 130 years in business, this bank changed its name in 2013 to "keep up with the times." It is located in a city that is named after a shrub.

    I didn’t know that Wahoo was named for a shrubby tree (Euonymus atropurpureus). I always figured some pioneer was overly enthusiastic about arriving here.

    Was just there a couple weeks ago. Would that I had the foresight to snap a pic!

    My maternal grandfather grew up in southern Missouri, and brought his young family to Nebraska in 1921. He retained his Ozarks accent throughout his life, and he pronounced the name of this town "Ellemwood."

    This town in Gage County had everything going for it with Nebraska’s first recorded cemetery, an excellent water supply, an electric power plant on the Blue River, dozens of successful businesses, two railroads, schools and even an interurban link to a nearby city. Today, like many small towns, its population has shrunk by two-thirds, but like its next-door neighbor, it maintains its status as an incorporated village.

    The metropolis of Blue Springs. 2.5 hours to get here on a small bike, with a hard seat, in high winds. Not sure if it was worth it ;) KIMG0935.JPG

    This building is all that remains of the bustling Blue Springs in this photo. You can just make it out left of the center of the photo.

    Some riders should probably spend the night here instead of pedaling back from Mineola on the Wabash Trace trail. KIMG1021.JPG

    @gn83tm I was about to PM you to see if you were going to grab this tag before I headed that way tomorrow!

    It was close by, and the day was too nice to not skip a little work and go for a ride!

    A few things going on in this photo, but I was focusing on the state park in the background. Maybe 1/4 mile of gravel to get to this spot.
