Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge

We went to visit the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge in December and it's just beautiful. The spring and fall are really the best times to visit the refuge, but it was pretty breathtaking in December too. The refuge is located around the Niobrara river and is about 77 km2 in size. There are a lot of bisons, elks and birds around. If you want to know more about the refuge, please check U.S Fish & Wildlife Service's website

Here are some photos from the Refuge and around Cherry County, Nebraska.

Victoria Springs cemetery, I think old cemeteries are interesting. You can learn a lot by just reading the gravestones.

The usual landscape in Nebraska; cornfields and cattle
