    The Oregon Trail ran along with Platte River, helping people get across Nebraska quickly.

    For a reason.

    BTW, there was a movement to tear down the border between Wyoming and Nebraska and make it one state.

    That way Nebraska could have pretty scenery and Wyoming could win a football game.

    I passed through Nebraska several years ago after a visit to Mt. Rushmore. The drive was pretty monotonous and unremarkable, but there were a few interesting sights. Scottsbluff National Monument, in western Nebraska, has mountains of a sort, the first hint for travelers from the east that the Rockies aren't far away. And Carhenge, a replica of Stonehenge made out of old autos, is a fun place to visit if you happen to be in the area.

    Then how did you know where you were? </font>[/QUOTE][​IMG] Drove to Lincoln to see relatives, which means I drove across the wole dern state. On the way back, I decided to go thru the western ridge of Iowa, & up to Rte. 90 in South Dakota. The scenery gets better, just outside of Omaha.

    We drove Nebraska East to West in '02.
    Flat, flat, flat until you get close to the Wyoming border.
