News Brief: We thought we were on our way to town to choir practice yesterday (Sunday afternoon) but instead we took one of our Caravans out deer hunting. And guess what? We got one. When I called my son to make an appointment in the body shop I explained that it wasn't my fault, she ran into me. I didn't run into her. He said I should then check her for an insurance card. Also, since it was daytime and whereas Dan is always pretty sympathetic he asked, "So, now your peripheral vision is going?"
The following pictures are pretty typical early spring sights along I-80, as you cross Nebraska. (The Great Platte River Road)
When we went west last week, Marilyn shot these out of the car window.
The first three pics are of Sandhills Cranes. They fairly saturate the mid portion of the 300+ mile trip across the state.
The last picture is of geese which also cover the same area. These are a combination of Snows, Blues, and Canada's.
Even though it stretches for over a hundred miles this is not a sanctuary. It is a good example of what leaving well enough alone can do for nature. For this you can thank Nebraska Farmers not the Government. The migration has continued for thousands of years with this stop along the Platte River to feed and gain strength and weight before they continue the flight. The geese darkened the sky at times because of their great numbers.
