Nothing in Nebraska… or is there??

There’s nothing in Nebraska, am I right?

Wrong!

We had been in Colorado for a little over a week and decided to head eat, then north to be able to mark off a few more states on our US sticker map. First stop, Nebraska.

We weren’t expecting a whole lot. We found a city park in Bayard, NE with hook ups that’s FREE for the first 2 nights! The little town has less than 2,000 people. And it was great to find this little gem of a village.

Last night we after we arrived we went for a run through town and noticed lots of extreme tree damage but mostly newly removed huge trees! This morning we found out a tornado ripped through town last Monday!

This morning we headed out to hike at the Scottsbluff National Monument. The typography on this area is amazing! It’s plateaus of sandstone!!! 

You can to the top of the bluffs and they have little paved trails and lots of educational displays. Both the Oregon Trail and the Mormon Trail went through this area.

Granted, it is mostly farmland out here but we love to see neat geological formations on our travels.
