2022 Nebraska State Fair

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:

Amarillo and Cadillac Ranch

Amarillo is located in the Texas Panhandle along the historic Route 66. They are known for Palo Duro Canyon (America’s Second biggest canyon) and Cadillac Ranch. Amarillo is also the Helium Captial of the World.

Due to rain, I was not able to visit Palo Duro Canyon. There is a nice, pleasant walking path around the hospital’s complex lake.

Near the lake was Helium Monument:

Cadillac Ranch is located on the west side of Amarillo. It is opened 24 hours a day. The biggest surprise was the layers and layers of paint on the vehicles.

Museum of World Treasures

The Museum of World Treasure is located in Wichita, Kansas. It contain artifacts from ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. Their military exhibits dates from the Civil War to the fall of the Berlin Wall. As you enter the museum, T-Rex Ivan welcomes you.

Head up the stairs you are greeted by a suit of armour.

One of my goals when I visit a museum is to capture patterns, and ancient pottery works contains the most interesting designs. Along with rock formations.

The military exhibit contained the normal items you see at most exhibits, but it did have original letters written from that period of time. By today’s standards, these handwriting is a work of art. So, I wonder if the kids today did not know what the U.S. Constitution says, because the can no longer read it.

In a corner, where most people would miss seeing the display, are two tapestries. These were the most beautiful items on display at the museum.

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.
