This Friday is for planning anyway. Taking a drive on Nebraska Highway 2 along the “Follow the Rails Art Trail”. The weatherman says it is going to be a beautiful day! We will be looking for the trees in their autumn glory. And some human made art as well. Hope to have some great photos to share on www.nebraskahighway2.com.
Watching the skies turning grey again and I am fighting the urge to go take a nice Sunday afternoon nap. It after 12:00 so its legal, right? but I have this list — well in my head anyway– of things I wanted to accomplish this weekend and now its Sunday afternoon — already. I did get the Mason City page up on www.nebraskahighway2.com yesterday. Only two businesses listed on the site but seeings how Mason City does not have a motel, restaurant or even a bar anymore, it is great that there are at least two businesses that travelers would be interested in stopping to see. I learned a bit about Mason City’s history. It was quite a busy little town for some years. The high school closed in 1966 so one can only imagine the demise that would follow. However, the town is nice. The community center on Main street appears to be thriving and up the hill is “The French Table”, an eclectic art collector’s dream. Right off of the Nebraska 2 highway is “Cooper’s Corner”, for hunting and gun enthusiasts.
Next weekend is the “Follow the Rails Art Trail” which runs from Grand Island along nebraskahighway2 to Alliance. A wonderful opportunity to get out on the highway and explore what these welcoming Nebraska communities have to offer to YOU!
