Day 69: Nebraska Has Short Elephants

As we drove through the eastern half of South Dakota and into Iowa and Nebraska, we saw a lot of corn. But it seemed shorter than the corn we are used to. This is feed corn. The starch is converted to ethanol and the protein is feed to livestock.

This field, ready to be harvested, is next to the RV park we’ve been in the last few days. 

Oh, What A Beautiful Morning ~ From the play Oklahoma

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow
There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye
And it looks like it’s climbing right up to the sky
