My third favor place to walk in Grand Island, Nebraska is Eagle Scout Park. There is a lake in the middle of the park with a 1.01 mile walking trailing. One of the benefits to walking in Eagle Scout Park is you are able to go in circles with no one judging you. Unless, you have gone around in circles many, many times, then people have started talking about you. Or, they have finished their few trips around the park and left.
During the walk around the park, you are able to look at the trees, the waves on the water, and watch the corn grow in the nearby field. There is a couple of things you need to be cautious about while visiting the park: one Wascally Wabbits; the pole wielding, capped homo sapiens perched on the lake’s edge, who occasionally emerge from the grass carrying their catches; and the swing sets that temps you to bring out your inner child.
Eagle Scout Park almost made it to second favor walking location; however since they are building a huge sport complex next door, I predict the traffic and noise level at the park to increase which will hamper the peaceful walk around the park.
Second stop Omaha. Just a quick stop.
I am so glad that Spring is finally here. It was a long Winter. Tomorrow starts my travels to Southern States. I hope to get some great photos.
Sun is out. Sky is blue. Temperature is about 60 degrees. It a great morning to walk in around the park.
Oh, and the geese are out. Avoid the dropping and the babies.
In five days, my 2500+ mile trip into Dixie and my visit to the land of the Cajuns is schedule to begin. So, you can expect more photographs and less drawings over the next 6 weeks.
As I was walking, I noticed how beautiful the sky was on this cloudy day.
Along I-80, in about the middle of Nebraska, crossing the Interstate, erected high, stands the Archway.
Inside the Archway is a museum that covers the history of the Great Plains of Nebraska. From the settlers, to building of the interstate, through today’s modern history.
Outside on the west side, is a maze that resembles a fort. It probably depicts Fort Kearney, which is only a few miles away.
Across the bridge there are sculptures of bison and walking trails that will take you to Kearney or the Fort Kearney State Historical Park.
I attended the Art Show of some very talented students from the Hall County area of Grand Island, NE. The event was held at the Sturh Museum. These are just a few of the hundreds items on display. Their parents and teachers should be proud.
The students put in a lot of time and effort on each piece.
The little added pieces provided an excellent enhancement.
Many of the students showed that they had a steady hand and a lot of patience.
Transforming one dot at a time into a work of art.
Even the creepy, crawly turned out beautiful.
Some pieces should their whimsical side.
Other pieces showed their creativity.
