21 Jul

We headed off this morning again on the bike path to see The Capitol Building here in Lincoln. It is truly impressive taking 10 years to build and costing $10 million 

We took the elevator to the 14th floor where we saw these views of Lincoln.

Our tour guide was a young adult who has a vision problem and will eventually go blind. The State of Nebraska has a program here at the Capitol which teaches them job skills as well as life skills so they can care for themselves now and in the future. They come from all over the state and are housed close by the capital for the duration of the summer program. Seems like a great program. We biked a few blocks and were on the City campus of University of Nebraska.  The university has 2 campuses,the other being east campus were the tractor test lab and dairy store are located. They are about a mile apart and easy to bike between.  On the city campus,we visited the football stadium which can hold 91,000. 

We rode around the campus and then rode on back towards our hotel by a circular route. On the way was a nice park with picnic tables in the shade which provided a great spot for a stretched out rest from the sun.A on Friday relaxing day. After dinner,we started gathering our stuff together for RAGBRAI.  It is coming soon!

Love, M&M

    Sounds like you had a great couple of days. Saw this article about signature ice flavor of each state and thought it was right up your alley. Check it out. I expect that you set the goal of tasting each one!
    BTW -they spelled Delaware wrong. Sent them an email!

    Thought you might head to Estes Park after Vail, running into Kristin and family. Now I know why I had strong thoughts about you while we were going thru Nebraska. We were driving thru Lincoln on Tuesday. We arrived home on the 20th, very tired, too. Enjoy your Iowa ride and be safe.
    Love, Ronnie
