2003 Annual Sandhill Crane Migration in Central Nebraska

01 May 2011 04:42 PM CDT


Lately I’ve been loving pictures of central Nebraska and of the annual sandhill crane migration.  Today’s pictures were taken by my parents (either Larry or Laurie, I’m not sure who in particular).  From what I can tell, it looks like they stopped at the same overpass we always do, the interchange for Shelton, Nebraska off of I-80.  I love these particular pictures because of the sunset.  Nebraska regularly sports pretty stellar sunsets.  I really like these in particular.  So, today I’m posting these pictures more for the sunset than for the cranes.  Enjoy!

And, just for good measure, here’s a look at where these photos were taken.  It’s a great place for crane viewing :)
