    Es ging von Fort Collins (Colorado) nach Custer (South Dakota). Über mehrere Stunden waren wir unterwegs, sind durch Wyoming, Nebraska und letztendlich durch South Dakota gefahren. Auf dem ganzen Weg war so weit wie das Auge sieht nichts. Mal kam ein kleiner Ort. Nicht umsonst ist Wyoming der bevölkerungsärmste Bundesstaat von der USA und das haben wir absolut gemerkt :D

    Schön war die Fahrt trotzdem alle Mal :)
    Vor allem, weil wir zum Schluss das erste Mal in unserem Leben Erdmännchen in freier Wildbahn gesehen haben. Vielleicht besucht uns heute Nacht auch eines :)

    Detour through Nebraska

    September 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Took a little detour on our way from South Dakota to Colorado through Nebraska, in part to say I’ve been to Nebraska and in part for a few road trip stops. One included Chimney Rock, not the most exciting geological feature we’ve seen but it’s on the Nebraska state coin and other billboards and things so fun to see.

    We also stopped at the Scotts Bluff National Monument, which was surprisingly cool. The 800’ hill has a split through which people traveling west would pass. It was often difficult with howling winds or deep mud. From the park we were even able to walk a portion of the original Oregon Trail. Would not have wanted to do that in a little wagon!

    The drive to the top of the bluff was beautiful and we passed through the only 3 car tunnels in the whole state! Such a fun little stop.

    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.
