If you haven’t been to Hitchcock Nature Center for a hike I highly recommend it! This place is a little piece of heaven only 30 minutes northeast of Omaha. Located in the Loess Hills, Hitchcock Nature Center offers over 10 miles of rugged trails (well, as rugged as you can get in NE/IA!) – you’ll definitely want some pretty good hiking shoes or water proof shoes out here. Here’s some snapshots from a recent hike at Hitchcock.
Can you see the mustache?
I absolutely love the green foliage against the wintery brown brush! (is that so nerdy of me or what?)
There was little snails everywhere!
This is from the top of the ridge line looking West to farmland and I-29 way back there.
It was kind of overcast the day we were out there so I tried some different editing options in Lightroom 4 to blue up the sky. Turned out pretty good. . . at least I think so!
Okay, can you see the little flash of red smack dab in the middle of this shot? It’s a woodpecker, I promise!
I think this is from the look out tower looking West over Hitchcock Nature Center.
There’s Brian at the top of the 45′ lookout tower. It was pretty, can’t wait to go on a sunny day!
I hope you are enjoying posts from our hiking adventures, I promise I’ll have a post on an creative project coming up soon!
