Although brief, I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with this young man recently who had just delivered a couple of his siblings to school behind this 12 year old mare.  Not exactly your average school bus:-).  Quite a contrast between horse and buggy, and wind turbines.  If you care to check out  these horizons with me,...

I negotiated the two blocks long gravel main street in St. Libory, NE – the Watermelon Capital of Nebraska – a few days ago and found my tires surfing on a sea of smashed pumpkins.  The grain semi’s had already hit town before me that morning, flattening this fall’s bounty of orange fruit, a small portion...

We are leaving bright and early Tuesday morning out of Grand Island to “navigate” the underground lake, the Ogallala Aquifer, which is presently the above ground lake in many places!  This is an awesome year in the Western Hemisphere’s largest area of sand dunes, the Nebraska sandhills,  unlike any I’ve seen.  Contact me at 308-379-3261...

I’m ready to shove off to Outstate Nebraska for a spring day of unique adventures!  Board the bus at Omaha or Lincoln on April 25th, and strike out with me as we visit unique venues in Central Nebraska including stops at buffalo and cattle operations with their respective new babies!  We’ll visit a couple of...

Pardon this lousy picture taken about 20 miles north of the Platte River Valley in Central Nebraska, but, if you look closely near the junction of the jet contrails, you can see a small contingency of Sandhills Cranes circling into formation as they prepare to continue their migration on north to Northern Canada and Siberia....

The bull elk in the center of this picture taken along the Sand Hills Journey Scenic Byway a few miles from my home has been hanging out with this cow herd for several years and avails himself of sandhills grass in the summer and combined corn fields in the winter. Life is good! Complimenting the...

Do a 180 and become a wind turbine tech – you know, the people that climb a ladder up through a vertical cylinder so that they can get their kicks by dangling hundreds of feet above ground from a harness! If that isn’t enough to give you a kick start, consider that you will get...

Evan old dogs want to ride sometimes – especially on warm summer days:-). And seeing the horse reminds me that I’ve set up time with professional trail riders to provide horse rides at the time of the solar eclipse in later August. I have a fantastic location secured to view it in the great Nebraska...

https://horizonswb.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/New-Hat-for-Christmas-1280x640.jpg

On a recent trip through the Nebraska sandhills, I stopped to see my friend James Marshall in the little ranching town of Arthur. James is a busy, professional hat maker, and trust me, he custom makes standard-of-the-industry hats! This picture of James shows you just a little of his shop and the equipment he uses...
