Continuing the saga of our western trip in September...
Before leaving Scottsbluff, Nebraska on September 18, we went back to the Scotts Bluff National Monument and drove to the summit.
Above is the view from the South Overlook on the summit of Scotts Bluff. The little cluster of buildings is the Visitor Center. The road leads from there, through three tunnels, to the summit.
The rest of the photos on this post are roadside scenes as we traveled from Scottsbluff, Nebraska to Independence Rock in Wyoming, southwest of Casper.
I know that Montana is called "Big Sky Country," but Wyoming has some pretty big skies, too.
Scenes like this are so different from the corn and soybean fields we're used to in Indiana.

I don't want to overload you with too many pictures, so I'll save Independence Rock and other Oregon Trail landmarks for the next post.
