Season Views II Part Two

We are really late with the second installment of our new Seasons Views. Travel, storms and just all around busy-ness have kept us from an enjoyable trip through the back roads of the Nebraska Outback.

The first series is from the Sarben bridge over the North Platte River. The picture below was taken at about 6:00pm on April 21. You can see that the river has dropped every so slightly. Word is that the federal government has authorized Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District to hold a little more water in Lake McConaughy, so hopefully it will help alleviate the high water flows in the Platte River.
The same location on March 12, 2011 at about 2:30 in the afternoon.
Below is the beautiful Sutherland Reservoir on April 21. While the tree still has a long way to go to sports its summer greenery, you can see the grass greening up.
The first picture in the series from March 12.
Haugland Hill on April 21. Just beautiful - finally turning green.
Same view from back on March 12.

Here is a bonus view from the Haugland Hill photo shoot. Our presence scared up a flock of turkeys who weren't worried enough to scurry away too quickly.
I have spring fever in a bad way. Just when it starts to warm up, another cold front moves through and dumps snow, rain, wind and just general nastiness on us. Ah well... eventually we will have summer!


Thanks for stopping by. The coffee is always on.
