When I saw Mahoney State Park was on the Passport list this year, I just had to smile. This is probably one of my favorite places in Nebraska, so of course, it had to be my first stamp. Fun fact: I grew up here! When I tell people this, they don’t quite understand, like I actually lived right in the park. 🙂 My dad was the superintendent for about 10 years, and so I spent my whole grade school up into the first half of high school calling Mahoney my home. I even worked there as a housekeeper in high school, giving me a whole different appreciation to the park. I have countless stories and fond memories of this park, and I will never tire of the view when I visit.
