Kearney Kruisin’

On Monday we took a road trip to Kearney, Nebraska, where I lived from kindergarten to 4th grade. I don’t remember much about the town so it was interesting to see. It’s a really nice town, lots of old brick houses and business buildings, cobblestone streets downtown, a lot of city parks and old tree lined streets. We found the two houses I lived in, one of the elementary schools I went to and the movie theatre my dad started in the mid-80’s. The rest of the tour was pretty much new to me. We only spent the afternoon there (and didn’t get many pictures) but I’d love to go back and hang out for awhile.

We started the Kearney tour at the Great Platte River Road Archway. We didn’t have time for the tour of the arch but we walked the grounds for awhile. Great Platte River Road Archway

The trip up there was pretty fun, too. We took the backroads, as we’re prone to do, and came across a smiling barn, the World’s Largest Ball of Sisal Twine and stumbled across the Geographical Center of the Lower 48 States.
