Visit to Toadstool State Park
This Friday, October 21, late in the afternoon afternoon on a beautiful day in the Panhandle area of western Nebraska, I visited one of my favorite landscapes, Toadstool State Park.
The area twenty-five miles north of Crawford, NE, is part of the Ogala National Grassland.
I have visited Toadstool a couple times, the last over a decade ago. This time presented a special opportunity, for I walked the one-mile loop for a couple hours alone except for the distant coal trains and the occasional rabbit.
This time around, I posted quite a few photographs, trying to capture something of Toadstool's special and stark beauty.
Next time, my plans include the three-mile walk from Toadstool to Hudson Meng Education and Research Center, another excellent location to visit.
