It's been a long, cold, windy winter. To say we are suffering from cabin fever would be an understatement! It's also been an extremely busy winter, with lots of travel for me, which hasn't left as much time as we would like for doing some fun travel adventures together. To remedy that, on a recent Saturday, we decided to take a road trip to Ord - of course, by the back roads. Here is a map of our route.Arnold to Callaway, then on to Broken Bow are filled with beautiful bluffs and scenic canyons surrounding fertile fields and pastures. This is a photo of one of the first bluffs we came to on that route.
Custer County's former prosperity is seen by numerous abandoned homes.
Sargent, Nebraska, on the road to Ord is a beautiful rural church.
Three hundred miles and six hours later, we were back at home, with a greater appreciation of Nebraska's diverse scenery. We hope to make the trip again when we can do it more leisurely and it's a little greener.
