On the way to Colorado

On the way to Colorado, we decideded to stop at some Nebraska sites that I had never been to. Normally I like to drive straight and not sightsee, but I thought, what the heck, we might as well. It is our state. So we stopped in Kearney, NE at the Kearney arch. It was pretty cool to go through and hear some of the history of this great state.

Tossing coins on this big map.

You go up in the arch and everyone had earphones that led you through the exhibit.

Alan explaining the route that was taken.

Very cool to see how big a part the UP played in NE. It is really neat to be part of a company that helped connect our country.

Hannah loves to have her picture taken.

Still my railroad enthusiast.

Still loves having her picture taken. Can you just see the sass? Love this little one!
