Talk about a beautiful state and countryside, IMG_7975in our travels around the state we’ve been stunned by the vistas and just the open beauty of the state.  We visited a shrine to the Holy Family, literally in the middle of corn and soybean fields.

The shrine was just outside of Omaha and whenIMG_7950 we got there the parking area was closed and we just had to follow a gravel path from a lower parking area.  Even to road to this shrine was unpaved.  Just a farming road winding through huge fields of corn.

Even though the shrine was closed we could still see inside and we visited the gardens and viewed the inside of the shrine through all the glass panels  There was a small water path IMG_7967that split the walkway into the church and flowed under the pews to the altar.  Just off I-80 a great place to stop and visit.
