Scott's Bluff, Nebraska
I know that few people talk often about some of the central US states, but today I'll change that. On a recent road trip to our photo tours we went east from Colorado. Now I have to admit that after several hours of driving through mostly featureless eastern Colorado and western Nebraska we were happy just to see something above the horizon. I can imagine the the first western settlers felt the same way. Anyway, Scott's Bluff National Monument in Nebraska really is beautiful and is also a super fun place to explore. We did scenic drives and several short hikes to overlooks and I photographed it all happily. Best thing about Scott's Bluff? There's nobody there! We saw very few other people and we were there in what was the height of the tourist season. The place was truly a breath of fresh air!
The shot here was taken right from a roadside overlook and because it was late summer most of the wildflowers were past prime. I imagine that if you visited during the late spring there would be tons of colorful flowers to use as foregrounds. I'll be back for sure.
