I grew up in a town of 5,600 people so I always laugh when people talk about small towns of 100,000. To me, a small town has 100 residents.

I was flipping through some older photographs from my trip home last summer and found a couple I hadn’t liked at the time, but I changed my mind on seeing them again.

Travelogue: Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

I’m a fan of wide open spaces (one of the reasons I like living in Nebraska), so taking a long weekend with a friend to drive up to North Dakota was pretty awesome. If the threat of a flash-flood-causing downpour hadn’t forced us to leave the park early, it would have been perfect. As it was, a nearly ten hour downpour soured the drive through South Dakota, but it did make for quite an adventure.

Oak Lake

It wasn’t too long ago that I was wishing for spring to come, and now it’s almost summer. What happened to spring? I think it got caught wavering between late winter and summer- it was either cool and rainy, or hot and overly sunny. *sigh* Such is the weather in Nebraska. But once in a while, we get a nice day and have the time to take advantage of it.

Daytrippin’: Henry Doorly Zoo

I always try to go to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha at least once a year. Memorial weekend probably isn’t the best weekend, since it’s so busy, but we went anyway and had a great time. I got some of the best pictures I’ve ever taken there, so maybe it wasn’t so bad dealing with the crowds.

Just Another Strange Picture

From time to time, I wander around the various neighborhoods of Lincoln taking pictures of things I find interesting. It’s become a sort of project for me, to document the city. It seems to be changing so quickly these days.

Anyway. Just a quick picture of a little purple shed I saw a while back.
