A FEW MINUTES AT EGBERT, NEBRASKA

A few years ago, as I was heading east to North Platte on US 30, I pulled off the highway at egbert. For me, it was just a name on maps of the Union Pacific Railroad and I wanted to see what was there. These images are the result of the impromptu visit. For some reason unknown to me, the raw images are overexposed. I have attempted to “fix” them and I apologize for the less than good color rendition.
