085 INDIAN SUMMER - NIOBRARA
Niobrara Scenic Riverway, Nebraska. At the crack of dawn, sunlight sneaks through a low bank of moisture-laden clouds and bathes the Niobrara River valley in golden light, shortly before a cold front moved through the region. For nearly a week in mid-0ctober, 70 degree days and blue skies turned this amazing mosaic of woodland and prairie, canyon and stream into a kaleidoscope of fall color. Hours later howling winds, snow flurries and gray skies dropped a curtain on these last Indian summer days- setting the stage for the coming winter.
