Moving Slow





Along the Missouri River in SE Nebraska, this is close to where my family homesteaded in the 1870's.


A tiny nest, I am unsure who lived here.
A pair of Bald Eagles possibly nesting nearby.

Lewis and Clark Museum- Nebraska City, Nebraska. This town is also the home for the Arbor Day Foundation, started by my Step grandmother's family.





Replicas of what the Lewis and Clark expedition lived in.





In a sand prairie cactus often are present.

  2. One of the things we learned in grade school was about Arbor Day. It may have been because it had Nebraska beginnings. And your step-grandmother started the foundation. I am impressed.

  5. Hi Steve - I'd love to visit the Lewis and Clark museum ... as well as sit by the fireside and hear more of your stories from you past - so glad you've got some memories ... and can see the area or some of it still - cheers Hilary

  6. Looking at the housing for the Lewis and Clark expedition was like taking a step back in time.

  8. Oh how hard it must have been to overwinter in that cabin. Late spring. Wonder what that portends for the summer.

  9. Stopping back by to reply to your comment on Airbnb - you'll have to let me know if you see anything of interest on the site. I saw one tee pee in our area for rent!

  10. Wow. 1870s. Your family has some serious roots in Nebraska don't they? Does anyone live there now?
    Take it easy, okay.
