This is what the roads looked like when we left. It was a little dicey and slow going, but we just took our time and made it to North Platte Nebraska safe and sound.
This is The Mom and all the new snow we woke up to in North Platte. Thankfully it didn't stick and didn't slow us down.
This is a museum that spans the interstate. Has anyone ever been here? It looks super cool!
In Colorado we mostly have creeks and small rivers so big rivers are exciting to us. This was next to a gas station we stopped at and I didn't see a sign naming it.
Another big river. And if I hadn't known a bit of the geography of the area, I would have thought it was the freaking Mississippi! Huge! But it obviously wasn't that, it is The Missouri or Mighty Moe as The Mom's Iowa native boss calls it. We liked the name so that is what we started calling the GPS who yelled at us a lot. Recalculating... recalculating!
A very cool atomic style sign at a bowling ally in south Minnesota.
The Mall of America wasn't far from us so we had to visit. Lego Transformer...Awesome!!!
Here kitty kitty kitty...
We stopped in Omaha on the way home and were pleasantly surprised. I expected a small town and was wrong wrong wrong! It is a pretty big city with a very cool Old Market District. This is one of the store fronts. It's a weird candy/antique shop/museum.
The candy part of the store. They had chocolate covered potato chips that I would have destroyed if I could eat chocolate. Probably a good thing I'm allergic...
The antique shop/museum part of the store was hard to figure out but cool. Some parts of it had specific booths and other parts had cases that looked like displays but could have had retail merchandise in them. Either way it was fun to poke around in there.
Next post...the goods! (For real this time) : )
