The Beauty of Turkey Alley

Ever driven Douglas County’s Rainwood Road from 60th to 72nd Streets just beyond the northern fringe of Omaha?

It’s cool! In fact, it’s one of my favorite drives in the metro area. My photos hardly portray how scenic this drive really is.

Nearly every time I drive the road (which is fairly often), I always see wild turkeys along it or on it! The locals have nicknamed this stretch of Rainwood “turkey alley.”

If you happen to be up in that neck of the woods for any reason, take a few extra minutes and drive Rainwood Road! You’ll be glad you did! It’s a neat little jaunt. Just slow down for the turkeys, will ya’?
