Hitchcock Nature Center, Oct 10th

Roll 35 - 26

The beauty of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa (where this shot was taken) takes many people by surprise. I know when Judy and I were considering moving out here, I assumed Nebraska would be a drier, flatter, more expansive version of the northern Indiana farmland I see driving from Chicago to Louisville. Endless rows of corn and soybeans. And there are places like that, but they are out further west. In and around Omaha, the Missouri River cuts through a remarkably beautiful landscape. These photos were taken at a nature preserve about 20 minutes from our house. The stunning vistas across the Loess Hills (loess being a land form of large hills formed from glacial deposits and then carved by water and rain).
