Scenes From My Trip to the Post Office

Today I had to go to the Post Office to mail a big pile of packages.
Our nearest Post Office is 21 miles away, in the town of Dunning. It takes nearly an hour to make the round trip, but sometimes it just has to be done.
So today I took along my camera and shot some of the scenery between here and there so I could share it with you. Here we go . . . it’ll be like you’re right in the truck with me!
It’s really beautiful here.
There’s nothing for miles except the Sandhills.
Not some people’s idea of wonderful, but I love it.
Long stretches of road with no one else out there.
On this particular trip, I met two other vehicles on the way there . . .
. . . and two on the way back. That’s it.
This is our Post Office. Tiny little place.
It kinda all starts to look the same after awhile, huh?
This is the town of Brewster. Population 12. We live 7 miles from town, to the east.
This is our mailbox. It’s three and a half miles from our house. When the postlady has packages, she calls us first, and tells us what time she’ll be there, and we can drive down and meet her to get them. Everyone is so friendly here.
While we’re waiting, this is the view we see across the road from the mailbox.
And here’s my favorite scenery of the whole drive. This is about a half mile from our house.
That’s the North Loup River there, and it runs right through our back yard.
I can walk out my back door and within two minutes be standing on the river bank. The other day I saw a bald eagle flying over the river.
Here’s a shot of our place from far off.
It really is gorgeous here.
And our driveway:
Home again, home again, jiggety jog! Thanks for taking a trip to the Post Office with me!
