Alan J. Bartels travels the highways, byways, dirt roads and backs roads of his home state always with a camera bouncing along on his passenger seat for his job as Assistant Editor of Nebraska Life Magazine. He's been snake-bit, knocked unconscious by an emu and had a close encounter with a wild black-footed ferret. Bartels' military service includes being a member of the 2nd Armored Division during Desert Storm. Turtles, sandhill cranes and craft beer are among his favorite things. Bartels is a lifelong Nebraskan. Follow him on Twitter.
