I went out to Mahoney State park (here in Nebraska) yesterday, on the advice of Lanette, who went out there last week and had a pretty fun time taking photos. There's a lot to do at Mahoney, but mostly I just wanted to climb the couple-hundred foot observation tower and wait for the sunset. As it turned out, the sunset wasn't that spectacular, as the tower is positioned to the south, not the east or west of the Platte. As you can see, the Platte's looking pretty dry this year, but that doesn't stop the fan-boaters. Click to enlarge any photo in a new window.
