|George spent some time this morning trying to get some of the dust off the truck and camper. This part of Nebraska is dry, dusty and has a lot of dirt roads. We'll travel the 230 miles to Scottsbluff, NE, which will take us off I-80 for awhile to explore some of the historical sites along the Oregon trial. Western Nebraska's landscape is very different then it's eastern side. The corn fields are fewer and cows are more abundant. It is flat, dry and prairie looking. We crossed over into Mountain time and gained another hour of our vacation, Yipeee! The temperature continues to rise all day, in fact the extended forecast shows no relief from the hot dry weather. There was a sprinkle of rain today, the first we've seen since we left home, but it didn't last for long. As we got near Scottsbluff the Wildcat Hills came into view. We also caught a glimpse of some unique landmarks that were named by the pioneers, the Courthouse and Jail Rocks and Chimney Rock. We'll explore those more closely tomorrow. We arrived at our campsite and had a nice dinner. We were able to stay outside long enough to enjoy it, but the heat put us back in the camper for the evening. We ventured out after dark and took a walk around the campground. It was much cooler. The stars were beginning to appear, what a beautiful night!
