When I went to Nebraska I ween to Omaha first and explored the city a bit. Then I decided head North and explore that area before crossing over the boarder into South Dakota. I remember literally driving and
When in Omaha someone MUST try their famous steaks. I had to see if the hype lived up my expectations. I decided to splurge here and eat at one of the best steak houses in Omaha. I chose to eat at 801 Chophouse I can honestly say that it exceeded any expectations that I may have had. the service was impeccable and the food was suburb. The steak was melting in your mouth. I have to say this entire expierecne was 5 stars from beginning to end. Definitely a must try when heading to Omaha!
I discovered this lake as I was driving North towards South Dakota. I literally saw something standing out to my right and it was stunning. I couldn’t even tell it was a lake at first. There were these bright colors which looked so amazing that I had to see what that was. So I decided to follow the brightness to this lake. These pictures so not even do this area justice by any means. It was drop dead stunning. Rolling bright green hills surrounded by a huge lake. I wish I knew about this place in advance I would have spent some time here.
I can honestly say Scotts Bluff is my favorite hike to date. It’s like a throwback in time. It is located off of the Old Oregon Trail. You won’t be able to miss it as there are these stunning rock structures protruding into the sky. The parks department protects and preserves this area as it is considered a National Monument. I wasn’t going to actually hike it until I saw a Park Ranger who suggested that I do it. So I grabbed a bottle of water and hiked upwards. With every turn you were facing a different area and a new structure. The views from the top of the mountain you are able to see all the way to Chimney Rock. There is even an area that is like a tunnel in the rock where you walk through it as if it were a cave and you come out the other side and continue the rock. It was just breathtaking the entire way through. I am beyond glad that I hiked this.
Chimney Rock is a rock formation not far from Scott’s Bluff which has a chimney shape sphere above it. It’s is so unique that it almost looks like it’s man made. You are only able to view this from a distance as it’s closed to the public since some of the land around it is private properly.
Buffalo Bill’s Ranch
As I was driving North I kept spotting these signs for Buffalo Bill’s Ranch. So like any adventurer would do I followed them to see where it took me. Buffalo Bill lived in North Platte Nebraska. The ranch was established in 1878. It was pretty cool just to be able to see it since it is upkeep is done so well. Definitely worth swinging by here if you have time!
