When you don’t own a drone, you take pictures like this:
the old fashioned way — you earn it.
After 100+ hard-won steps, I reached the tippity top of the lookout tower
at Platte River State Park, near Louisville, in eastern Nebraska.
The first tall tower of the day belonged to Mahoney State Park,
just west of the above, and only 30 miles from home.
We “children of the corn” live a ways away from the river,
as do the cows, pigs, and soybeans you can’t see from up here.
Slow and shallow runs this river through the heart of the country.
Nebraska rates 2nd in cattle population, but 37th in peoples.
Per land area, we rank 15th, and 3rd for growing corn.
But when it comes to college football…well?
We are mostly famous for that.
When you bleed HUSKER red,
you’re always on top of your game.
