For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Where is Jack, Day 155

Today, we woke up and took a walk on my road.
Then, we went to town to get the oil changed in the truck. We had to make an appointment for 3:30 p.m., so we decided that Nancy needed to grab something to eat and that we were going to find SOMETHING interesting in this area. We needed to get out of our funk.

We found the Fort Niobrara Wild Life Preserve . Unfortunately, Nancy had forgotten her camera. We saw one lone bison which would have been too far away to photograph, but Nancy always has her binoculars. We also found the Niobrara River and a narrow bridge that crossed it. It was getting near the time to go back to the Dodge dealer to get the oil changed. Nancy realized, then, that she had forgotten her purse as well as her camera so we had to go all the way back to the campground. We waited 1-1/2 hours to get the oil changed.

When we were finished, we headed back to the preserve and we came across this grumpy guy. I barked at him and Nancy told me to close my mouth. Geez, I was only trying to protect her.

We couldn't find the unusual bridge, but we could see an old bridge in the distance. We couldn't get to it, though, because the dirt road just ended. We did find the river and a couple of "scenic overlooks" which paled in light of what we had seen further west.

We walked several more times on my road. We have to be careful because of burrs on the ground-boy do they hurt. There are also rattle snakes.

Then we took a walk to the pond in the campground. We've seen geese and ducks. They don't seem to stay, but it's a pretty little pond.

Tomorrow we head out. I'm not sure exactly where. I guess we'll decide in the morning.
