The last week of March was Spring Break for local teenagers. I took the opportunity to drive to visit family and sights in Nebraska.
Two hours out of Winnipeg we encountered the floodwaters of the Red River in North Dakota.
Arriving in Omaha we checked out the new pedestrian bridge, it sure looks like our bridge in Winnipeg, minus the restaurant in the middle.
We then drove Interstate 80 going West, in search of Sand Hills cranes. We were not dissapointed.
Continuing on West, at the recommendation of my brother, we took in ‘Carhenge’
Our next destination was Mt Rushmore. Sadly the weather fogged over. More exactly a blizzard hit. We could hardly see the road. My teenagers got the driving challenge they had asked for.
Mount Rushmore was invisible.
Back in North Dakota, the weather cleared. The boys were satisfied with their Spring Break escape.
Pretty amazing what you see when your teenager takes over the camera on a vacation.
All in all it was a pretty amazing trip
Carol acknowledges that we are on Treaty 1 territory, the traditional gathering place of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota and Dene people and the traditional homeland of the Métis people. Carol also acknowledges that sprang is part of many indigenous traditions and found in various forms all over the world. Let us re-discover this technique together.
