Western Nebraska Trip

Camping with my mom on a back quarter section on the ranch that her and her sister Karen inherited, near Redington Gap in Morrill County.  Just us and the cows, our own private park in the Sandhills.  Cousin Eden comes with Aunt Karen, and we both climb the working windmill after a few drinks.  I guess they can't find anyone to repair windmills anymore, Eden cuts his head on a blade.  We visit the cemetery, we stop at Trailer Row, we try to chop down thistles.  We visit with family, lawyers, grass inspectors, and the extremely scarce general contractors there are out there.  And I try to take some photos, being rushed on every time I raise my camera to my face.  On the seven hour drive back to Lincoln, I vow to come back sooner to this magical place with a little more time to soak it all in, and always disappoint myself when I don't.
