Evening hike to California Bend on the Missouri River
I drove down to Optimist Park Tuesday afternoon to hike and snap some fall color along the recently opened Lincoln Trail. The new trail begins at Optimist Park and extends north to California Bend along the Missouri river. Officials from the City of Blair and the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District held the official ribbon-cutting on Friday, October 13.
Setting sun reflects from tree leaves and leaves the trail in shadow.
Trees separate the trail from farm fields.
Remains of an old windmill stand at the edge of the river chute at California Bend on the Missouri River.
