Fall is officially here


Hate to say it but . . . Fall is officially here. That crisp chill in the evening air, harvest in full swing, and the Huskers have now played four games. These are all seasonal signs in Nebraska. The leaves on the trees are starting to change color. Now is a great time to get out and take a Sunday cruise in your car or on your motorcycle. There are some great destinations to see these beautiful changes.

Here are a few from East . . .

  • Indian Cave State Park – near Brownsville
  • Along the Missouri River – fromm Omaha to Fort Calhoun
  • Ponca State Park – near Ponca
  • Platte River State Park – near Louisville
  • The Elkhorn River – from Omaha to Norfolk
  • Wagontrain and Stagecoach Lakes – near Lincoln
  • Anywhere along the Platte River

To West . . .

  • Lewis and Clark Lake, Missouri River – near Crofton
  • Calamus Reservoir and the Burwell Area
  • Niobrara National Scenic River – near Valentine
  • Nebraska National Forest – near Halsey
  • Johnson Lake – near Lexington
  • Wildcat Hills – near Scottsbluff
  • Chadron State Park – near Chadron

We’ve named just a few here that are more popular and also locations that I have travelled to during the fall. There are many more scenic routes or areas for this time of year, but too numerous to put here.

If you have a favorite not mentioned here,┬áleave a reply. I’d be happy to add it to the list.
