Geese Fly into a Building

The wagon train is life size and runs through a park and onward for blocks. We drove the streets following the progression (Watch for traffic! We discovered it on a weekend). One of the most interesting things we stumbled across in two drives around the country.

Geese Flying into a Building

Officially titled "Spirit of Nebraska's Wilderness," this sculpture is unique. It starts off with a wagon train, which then stampedes a herd of bison, which then flushes a flock of Canadian geese. The geese then take off and fly into the First National Tower. The sculpture covers six city blocks, and consists of over 100 pieces which weigh up to six tons. The majority of the sculpture is outside, except for the geese that are inside the First National Tower; they're only accessible during business hours.
