Platte River Sunrise
There is an abandoned railroad that has been converted to a hiking/biking trail near old Fort Kearney. An old railroad bridge on the route provides a good vantage point to view "liftoff" of the cranes in the morning from their overnight sandbar "encampment". Unfortunately, my arriving a little before sunrise was not early enough to see "liftoff". Oh well, the sunrise was nice.
