Beautiful Sunset to Complete the Day

We only had a 50 mile drive today to Chimney Rock, Nebraska. So we got there, set up the RV and went to see the sights. We drove over to Brayard, NE, and visited the local museum. Actually--we went to the wrong town and had a great visit at the Brayard Museum. From there, we returned to Chimney Rock to visit the Visitors Center. In the photo, you may be able to read the sign--Rattlesnakes in the area! Chimney Rock was the first natural feature that the settlers who drove their wagons across the plains in the 1840's. At this point, they were about 1/3 of the way to Oregon or Utah. After Chimney Rock, we drove over to Scottsbluff to visit that area. The 1800's wagon trains passed by this point along their journey. They made about 12 miles a day. I am glad we could do the trip at 65 mph!
