Nebraska – Unadilla (Chisholm Family Farm & Orchard Hill Creamery)

My friend and I visited Chisholm Family Farm & Orchard Hill Creamery in Unadilla, Nebraska (http://www.chisholmfamilyfarm.com/http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unadilla,_Nebraska).

While my friend shopped at the store, I walked around and took pictures.  I was quickly greeted by the farmer’s young child (about 5 years old), who joyously volunteered to assist me.

The boy introduced me to the chickens and roosters.

A farmer led me down a pasture to look for the cows.

We also visited the greenhouse and tasted some freshly grown vegis.

Nebraska – Elmwood

I spent a couple days in Elmwood, Nebraska.  It is a small town of 600-700 residents east of Lincoln, NE and south of Omaha, NE.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elmwood,_Nebraska)

I thought it was very cute.  Here’s some pictures.

Nebraska – Ashland (Eugene T. Mahoney State Park)

Last night, just before sunset, my new friends and I went to the Eugene T. Mahoney State Park  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_T._Mahoney_State_Park).

We  headed up a very tall observation tower (Walter Scott Jr. Observation Tower) to watch the sunset.

The tower sat on a bluff that overlooked the Lower Platte River.  Since Nebraska is pretty flat, one can see far from the top of the tower.

I started running up and got to teh third floor.  Suddenly, I realized that the structure had hollow circles on the floor and it rocked (from the others on the tower and from the wind).

My fear of heights kicked in.

MahoneyStatePkNebraska2015 (60)

I do not mean a casual fear, but a death grip on the guardrail-type fear.  I was able to move a little, but not much….

My friends came back down to check on me.  A sweet teenager (from our group) took my hand and (by also grabbing the guardrail) I walked to the top.  I was still frightened up there, so he stayed with me and held my hand while I walked around and took pictures.   (The young man seemed like an angel to me.  I knew I would be safe with him.  FYI – He is a 17 year old exchange student from Japan.)

Here are some of the pictures…

Something different…

As you know from seeing my blog, I usually take pictures of landscapes and nature.  Every once in a while, I see things that have more of a classical artistic flare.  Here are some…

Nebraska

In 2011, I drove across Nebraska on country roads.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nebraska)
