I am usually out of town when the when the Nebraska State Fair rolls around. This year I made it back into town just in time for its very last day. The Nebraska State Fair isn’t just about the carnival rides, its mainly about 4H and FFA. There is livestock, food, crafts, woodworking, quilt and many more competitions. There are food vendors and other vendors displaying their merchandise, entertainers, and concerts. Here are some pictures from the fair:
Up Close To Fall
The Fall Season has beautiful colors. The leaves are falling from the trees. The berries are a bright red. The sky is a brilliant blue (or it is when I go out.) It is enjoyable to go and experience that colors of fall. Sometimes, I capture something special.

I was looking for something to do, outside because I didn’t want to wear a mask, in Lincoln, Nebraska and I found Holmes Park. It was a 2.2 miles walk around th lake.
Walk Around Park
Here are a few pictures of my first outing since…. I can’t go many places, but I can go to the park if I stay off of the playground equipment. My first outing was a walk around L.E. Ray Park.
I liked how the sun was reflecting off of the grass.
The geese will leave you along, as long as you don’t go near their babies.
Here are a few pictures of Fall. Leaves are turning. Branches are becoming bare. There a cool, blistering breeze in the air. The kind that can blow you down and there is not enough clothing that you can put on the protect you from the cold wind.
Sand Hill Crane
March and April it is prime time to view Sand Hill Cranes in Nebraska. The best viewing time is early morning or evening. In Nebraska, at that time of year it is cold and it can be very cold, and windy – really windy. I cannot envision me taking that particular adventure because I like warm weather and sunshine.
However, when walking through a Mall I will walk through there free display recognizing the Sand Hill Cranes.
2018 Fantasy of Tree
Each year the Stuhr Museum host a tree display. The trees are decorated by schools and local organizations. Below are a few of the 2018 trees:
Pictures of all the trees are available on my Photos By Sarah Facebook page. Also, you can find 360 Videos of some of the trees: East Side – West Side.
Snow in November
Well that is a lot of snow for November, in Nebraska. I will not be going and swinging on the swing set today. Why? Because it will mess up the beautiful snow.
If you are already sick of the cold and ready for the Spring, go check out my flower blog, Up Close to Flowers.
Pictures of Fall
Just a couple days before the first freeze the temperature was in the 80s. When it snowed a couple of inches and the temperature dropped to 23 degrees over night, the trees goes “Yipes! We are suppose to be hibernating for the winter.” So, the leaves on the trees start turning colors and dropping to the ground quickly. Yes, Fall is here!
This my be the best restroom in Nebraska. What make a good restroom? 1) Clean; 2) Individual rooms; 3)
Yes, heated toilet seats. To bad it was 80 degrees outside. 4) You can get drink, food and gas right outside the door.
