I’m getting back into my morning cycling routine, thankfully. Today I took the leg of the Grand Island trail system east from Hall County Park; before today I’d turned around at the park and retraced my pedals back to the loft.
The trail east, the Riverway Trail, basically cuts across the prairie. The ride was great as the morning sun seeped through a dry fog, although the trail ended sooner than I’d hoped. The map suggests Riverway goes another 2.5 miles east as crushed rock. In reality, it ends in a field off of South Locust Street.
Anywho, about halfway in between Hall County Park and South Locust lay this collection of barns.
There are at least three of them — on behind the tree on the left — all wood and concrete block in decent repair. They’re probably being used, but my mind immediately went to how well they would work as a Christian artist retreat.
Central Nebraska has another art farm, although it’s not faith-based like my idea, about 20 miles east of Grand Island. I’ve never been, but I hope to get out to Art Farm Nebraska soon. Some of the residents are preforming and showing off new installations August 15th.
It’s already on my calendar.
