Platte River at 38th Viaduct



Cassady first ran away from home to this spot.


``Mainly it was the banks of the Platte that provided the flexuous corridor for my travels...Near the 38th Avenue U.P. yardoffice, this stack, tempting for the splendid bicycle hills alongside, was also my destination on my first run-away-from-home at eight [1934].'' [First Third, 83]
