Through the Seasons Part 2

Back on the 5th of May I started a series posting a photo of one location north of my hometown of Sutherland Nebraska each month. Here is the photo on May 5 at about 6:00 p.m.:
And here is the same location on June 5 at about 8:30 a.m.:
You can now clearly see the corn growing in the rows, and just look at those trees along the North Platte river. In the far background are the beautiful Sandhills to the north just starting to green up. If we continue to get some timely and gentle rains, they'll be green for most of the summer.

For a point of reference, the road going straight to the north is the Little Snake Road, although after some recent renovations by the Lincoln County Department of Roads, it hardly lives up to its name. Turning to the west (left in the photos) is the Big Snake Road, which very much lives up to its name and is a beautiful drive.

Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
