    Headed northeast to Robidoux RV Park in Gering, Nebraska. Our site is huge with a paved pad and picnic area surrounded by grass and views of Scott's Bluff. Randy is a happy camper as they allow you to wash your vehicles, much needed after six and a half weeks on the road, and Kuma is a happy pup with room to run.
    Monday we went to the Scott's Bluff National Monument visitors center then drove up to the summit and took a short hike where we enjoyed some awesome views.

    We also took in the Legacy of the Plains Museum which was really well done. http://legacyoftheplains.org/
    I'm doing well with my Farmers Market produce. Have made dilly beans, beans and leeks in the instant pot, cucumbers and dill in roasted shrimp and orzo salad, low carb lasagna with zucchini and eggplant. 😋

    Tuesday we drove to Lake Minatare where we climbed to the top of the lighthouse and checked out the campgrounds. http://outdoornebraska.gov/lakeminatare/ Then we strolled around downtown Gering and shared a cabbage burger at the bakery. Cabbage burgers are popular around here and are pretty tasty. We ended our afternoon cycling the Monument Valley Pathway along the North Platte River in Scott's Bluff then visiting Rebecca Burdick Winters grave. ://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rebecca_Winters_(pioneer). We had some awesomely delicious steak nachos at the Steel Grill for dinner.
    Wednesday we were up early for a 6 mile hike at Wildcat Hills State Recreation Area where we also visited their Nature Center. Next we went to Chimney Rock National Historic Site and Visitors Center. https://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/scotts_bluff/chimney_rock.html

    We've enjoyed our stay in Nebraska... LOTS of Oregon Trail history, sugar beets, corn, potatoes and sugar beet refineries.
