    • A Spring Day in Cheesman Canyon

      One weekend at the beginning of April Skyler Yanish and myself figured we would go check out the widely known fishing location Cheesman Canyon. it is a section of the Platte River that we live an hour away from and we had to go check it out. The location is in a very beautiful section of Colorado. It was about a 15-20 minute hike from the parking lot to the river. From the trail head we waded up stream a ways. This is a gorgeous canyon with many giant boulders that have fallen into the Platte. The fish are very smart since they are fished all the time but there are some very big and beautiful fish. Mostly brown trout and Rainbows, but on occasion a sucker was spotted.

          • Sandhill Cranes of the Platte

            Sandhill cranes migrate from northern Mexico and the southwestern U.S. each spring, stopping at the Platte River in Nebraska to fuel up for the rest of their migration to nesting sites in Canada and eastern Siberia. The Platte hosts approximately a half-million Sandhills from late February until early April. The birds roost on the river's sandbars at night to protect them from predators, then fly to nearby cornfields at dawn to feed on waste corn from last year's harvest and small invertebrates in the soil. The morning and evening 'commute' from and to the river ranks as one of nature's greatest visual and auditory spectacles. I have been a 'craniac' for about six years. I had the opportunity to join the 2011 International Crane Foundation Platte River Adventure, led by ICF co-founder Dr. George Archibald and ICF President and CEO Dr. Richard Beilfuss. The experience was wonderful (in the true sense of the word: "full of wonder") beyond words. We spent the early morning and evening of March 18 at the Rowe Sanctuary in Gibbon, Nebraska, in blinds built along the banks of the Platte. This video records those morning and evening experiences. Although I've been a still photographer since I was ten, I realized the Sandhills demanded sound and motion. This is my first attempt at HDSLR video. I hope it provides you with some sense of the wonder associated with the sights and sounds of the Sandhill cranes of the Platte.

              In her 2009 book Hope for Animals and Their World, Dr. Jane Goodall looks at species that have been brought back from the brink of extinction, including Nebraska's famous sandhill cranes. Today, Dr. Goodall continues to travel an average of 300 days each year breaking only to visit family, recharge her batteries in Gombe National Park, and to witness the annual migration of the sandhill cranes in Kearney, Nebraska. She has made her trip to Kearney an annual tradition. Join the Jane Goodall Institute along the banks of the Platte River in Nebraska to view the great migration of the sandhill cranes, one of Dr. Goodall's most cherished pastimes, and enjoy an evening with Dr. Goodall.

                One of many such groupings found along a 50 stretch of the Platte River in south central Nebraska. The cranes spend several weeks in the area resting, eating and mating each spring.

                    Photos I've taken over the last three years in central Nebraska of the Sand Hill Crane migration. Every spring over 500,000 sand hill cranes migrate through central Nebraska. The roost overnight on the sand banks of the Platte River. Each evening hundreds of thousands of sand hill cranes leave the surrounding cornfields and almost simultaneously take flight to roost in the Platte River. It's an amazing "audial" and visual experience. Photos by Paul Gornell Music by Helen Jane Long

                      Centennial Gardens are located at 1100 Little Raven next to Elitch Gardens (which by the way really isn't a garden but an amusement park.) The Centennial Gardens takes its design cues from the parterre Gardens of Versailles. The best thing about this park is nobody knows about it, so if you need a quiet place to relax in the city stroll on over. Besides all that its free to visit. The park is not lush but features native plants that endure Denver's arid climate and requires little water. So its as smart as it is beautiful and changes with the seasons. Not bad for an area that used to be a car crushing plant on the Platte river. For hours and information call 720-865-3585: Information Desk, Denver Botanic Gardens
