020 OCTOBER MORNING
Niobrara Wild and Scenic Riverway, Nebraska Sandhills. A snow squall moves in from the north over the Niobrara river in October. Located along the northern edge of the Nebraska sandhills, the Niobrara river has been described as the biological crossroads of the Great Plains where several different major forest and grassland types meet and are at the limits of their ranges. Protected because of its unique natural history and scenic beauty, the Niobrara is the only remaining west to east running river in the Plains without a major dam or diversion along its reach.
