Yesterday, the Curious Souls decided to take the dog for a walk. We were looking for somewhere that we had not yet been before, so we chose the Pawnee National Grassland. There were two very short trails in the western part of the grassland near Crow Valley Recreation Area. We hiked them both in under an hour (I said very short, right?) and were left wanting more. So, eastward we went on our way to Pawnee Buttes . Along the way, we discovered the Cedar Creek Wind Farm and plenty of wide open space. After the Buttes, we looked at the map and discovered that we were only about 20 miles south of Nebraska. And, to seal the deal, we noticed that just over the border was also the highest point in the state. Here we are at the aptly named Panorama Point. While only 5,424 feet in elevation it did have some lovely, long, expansive views into the seemingly infinite plains around us. As far as either of us could remember, this is the first time we actually visited the highest
Hey - you guys are in Canada, according to your map. Awesome stuff.ReplyDelete
Let me know when you are going to be in Calgary. We have an extra bed, and you would have your own shower to use.
Thanks, Terry! After Vancouver, we are going to roll back down into the Seattle area to spend some time with some Phoenix friends that are making the trip up to meet with us. What good friends we have!ReplyDelete
After that, we are headed East to Glacier National Park and may or may not head back North after that. We will certainly let you know our plans and we really appreciate the kind offer!
