The September/October 2020 issue of Nebraska Life features Junk Jaunt’s relic hunters who hit the road in search of rusty gold during Central Nebraska’s 500-mile-long garage sale. With more than 4 million trees, Omaha lights up with a colorful seasonal kaleidoscope when autumn arrives. Nebraska’s frontier past and a healthy dose of political wrangling combine for a cartographic oddity leaving Merrick County with an eternal thumbs up. Adaptable tumbleweeds with a knack for survival roll across Nebraska like our state’s hardy pioneers. Raise a glass of Kool-Aid as we celebrate meadowlarks, mammoths, cottonwoods and the other symbols that define our state. Pumpkins roll up to the pie plate for seasonal recipes that are no trick and all treat.
