On Friday we decided to visit the Nebraska state capital building in Lincoln. It's about a 55 minute drive west of our present location and was an easy drive along Interstate 80. Our recent experience with the visit to the Kansas capital building in Topeka has a thinking about visiting as many state capitals as possible when we are relatively close in our travels. (As an aside, I lived in Virginia for 54 years and NEVER once visited our state capital in Richmond, but now that we're free to travel I'm certain that we will put it on our list on one of our trips back east.)

|Current Legislative Chamber|
|Supreme Court Justice's Bench|
The Judicial Branch (State Supreme Court) is also housed in the southern end of the Capital. The public is invited to attend when the court is in session, but once the relatively small gallery is full the doors are closed. The proceedings are also televised.

Thanks for reading this far on a rather lengthy blog post.
As always, thanks for dropping by to take a look!
