Travel log : Day 6 - Iowa & Nebraska
We started the day with picking wildflowers on the side of the road. I think I would have vases all over my house filled with wildflowers if I had such an abundance near my house. Seriously, these flowers have been everywhere!
K's silly 'squinty' face
Gotta love the trash on the side of the road...
Then we walked over to a farm across the street to see what was growing in the field,
We found some grasshopper friends as well.
We then continued along the Oregon trail:
Our next destination was Fort Kearney. This was one of the 6 primary forts built to protect the pioneers on the Oregon Trail.
Hello up there!
K climbed a tree there and with some help from Daddy had some friends come visit
Our last stop for the day was at the Great Platte River Road Archway Monument. This was built over I-80 in Nebraska commemorating the old wagon trail. Unfortunately it was closed when we got there but it was still such a beautiful sight to experience.
More to come... this feels like the never-ending story!
