Wrath Of Nature

We decided to spent full day in Ponca State Park, Nebraska and were actually discussing about the food items to bring for our picnic on the night of 9th July.

Zorinsky Lake – Best Sunset View In Omaha

It’s been a while, since I spent some time in Nature. My balcony is the only place, where I can breathe some fresh air. I love watching those birds fighting, playing and feeding in my balcony.
