Nebraska: Omaha

Friday, May 24 through Tuesday, May 28

We drove from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Omaha, Nebraska to visit several attractions that I/we had missed previously (I lived in Bellevue, Nebraska in the early 1980s). We visited the Henry Doorly Zoo, Lauritzen Gardens (which didn't exist when I lived in Nebraska), the Durham Museum, Joslyn "Castle," Heron Haven, among other minor attractions, and we re-visited the Homestead National Monument of America (west of Beatrice, Nebraska) to see what it's like without many hundreds of people there (as it was during the 2017 total eclipse of the sun).

I tracked the trip with a Bad Elf GPS Pro+ GPSr (GPS receiver). There were a few problems:

NOTE: the downloadable GPX tracks are the full GPX files, while those shown on the provided "view map" links are simplified (with minimal effect on geographic accuracy) for much faster viewing.

Original GPX tracks are unedited, except as noted.
