Wood Lake, Nebraska

Since I do not know where to begin with the blogging of my experiences of the Summer of 2016 I guess I will start with this quaint abandoned church in Wood Lake, Nebraska.

Wood Lake is in Cherry County, Nebraska and is on highway 23.

It also has a historical marker.  Here is some historical information about Wood Lake which was originally called "Cottonwood Lake."

I caught a glimpse of this old church off of the highway and had to go find it.

It was a hot day and the drive across Nebraska seemed like an eternity because it was our last day of our great Northern adventure and I was tired of driving.

I'm afraid I'm a victim of wanderlust.  Our last trip was in July and I'm already wishing I could go somewhere else.

Looking at the abandoned churches, houses, settlements is realizing that someone spent their time and craftsmanship to build that building, home or place of worship.

And someone else chose to allow it to fall into a state of disrepair.

I think everything needs time, passion and attention for it to thrive.  When the time and attention leaves things fall into disrepair.  We no longer care.  I'm afraid that this blog is going the way of losing my time and attention.   Yet, I have so much material that I can pour into it, which could be useful for someone, somewhere.

One more shot before we left town to head towards I-80 to get on our way back to Oklahoma on that June day.
