But we made plans for the rest of the trip, and by the time we were on the road Thursday morning, we were both in a much better attitude and spirit. On to Kearney, Minden and Hastings.
On to Minden only a few miles southeast of Kearney....
On our way into town, we knew to be watching for Bill's grandpa's arch that was reportedly along the highway before the entrance to the Harold Warp's Pioneer Village. So being tourists, I stopped in the middle of the highway and snapped a pic quick. Wasn't sure if we would see if good from the inside of the museum.
Side note: If you check back to a previous post about David City, you will see more of Floyd Nichols sculptures at the entrance of the city park. The David City artwork has a military theme and well worth taking a peek at.
We stopped for a root beer float before leaving the village which topped off a nostalgic day perfectly. Back in the car and headed east to Hastings for Kool Aid Days, a 3 day event celebrating the fact that Kool Aid is part of Nebraska history.
