Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge Walk

This was day 1 of the Walking Convention Events in Iowa. We signed up at Hurrah’s and rode a bus to the walk start. It was raining as we headed out. We were crossing the Missouri River over into Omaha. The Missouri was 30 ft above flood stage!

Walk registration for those not pre-registered.

This is not on the walk route. We've gone wandering in search of Souvenirs.

Really great cones dipped in chocolate and rolled in peanuts!

Memorial to those who fought that we might remain free.
