Thank you so much for all the handouts and advice about visiting the Sandhills. They have been very helpful in planning our visit - our "Sisters' Trip"! And, the doggie was a treat. Thanks again.
“If I'm lucky I hope to pass your way many times again. I took Highway 2 from Grand Island to Ellsworth, and then up to Gordon on my way to Casper, Wyoming, from St. Johns, Michigan. It was just a little out of the way but I'll never regret it. The people are as beautiful and serene as the land. It is a great place to vacation, and just relax. I loved St. Anselm's Catholic Church, the jail, and "soddy" in downtown Anselmo. The store in Ellsworth where I purchased a cowboy hat was great. And even though the Mari Sandoz monument is on Highway 27, twenty-five miles up the road from Highway 2, that site was special too. The incredible scenery, and the feeling I had such a place of surreal beauty all to myself, cannot be reproduced anywhere else. It was an amazing experience. I think about Highway 2 all the time. It brings me great peace just knowing a place like yours exists in our world today. May God bless.” Kevin Hayes St. Johns, Michigan, USA Author of "Don't Vote For Me" and "Kickland"
