So there is something in Nebraska after all

Nebraska was always a place I really disliked. Having driven through it twice to get to Colorado and California, it was the least interesting, most boring, and most likely to cause lead-foot-syndrome place I’ve ever been. Apparently, I was speeding right past the good parts on the long, straight I-80.

Toadstool Geologic Park is located in Nebraska’s northwest corner, just south of South Dakota’s Black Hills National Forest. Volcanic deposits have eroded irregularly leaving toadstool-shaped formations in what’s known as “Nebraska’s Badlands.”

To the east of Toadstool is Pine Ridge, an area that has been eroded away on either side by the Niobrara and White rivers, leaving a network of tall, flat buttes and canyons.

These are places I’ll have to make sure to visit, even if they are in Nebraska.
