Traveling Again


Off on the road for the summer. Hoping along the way to be able to add posts to our blog with images of sites we have seen. And which will be enjoyable for you.

One of our first stops on this trip was the Squaw Creek Wildlife Refuge. Not the most active time of year for this refuge. It was nice to become more familiar with it while almost no one else was there. Current residents were a few deer that were to quick to run away along with some ducks, geese, white pelicans and a few other varieties of smaller birds.

This family of Canada Geese found a place to dry their feet.    🙂

Our next stop was the Lewis and Clark Center in Nebraska City, NE. We did not take any photos there. An elementary class was visiting and their were children everywhere enjoying their class visit.

While in Nebraska City, NE we were told about the Arbor Lodge State Historical Park. A very interesting park, should you be in that area it is well worth the visit and admission.

The favorite part for Marilyn was the Carriage House. I think if there had been a horse available she might have hooked it to one of the carriages and taken it for a spin.  LOL

There are many different carriages and conveyances in the exhibit and below is the Tack Room that also has some interesting items in the exhibit.

A few of the carriages

Grand Staircase & Painting

The image above is of the grand staircase and a very large painting. Most of the furnishings in the home are of the late 1800 and early 1900’s.

We hope to be able to continue posting to this blog. It will depend on when and where we can find an Internet connection and whether we have gotten any images worth posting.

Have a great summer!
