For the second half of my journey I traveled to the Sandhills of Nebraska. Remote and beautiful, this undulating landscape is especially verdant in the spring after frequent rain showers and wildlife is especially abundant. Here, where humans infrequently venture, serenity and peace reign and nature abounds.
A common sight in the Sandhills, a rural road winds among the hills and a windmill stands guard.
The Sandhills are a birder’s dream as many species flock and fly throughout the region.
Did I mention there are windmills here? Probably many more windmills than people.
One of the many lakes in the Sandhills, Willow Lake is calm on a perfect spring eve.
