Flew into Denver. After 1st night , drove up to Sterling and visited "Overland Trail Musuem" which was very good, then in the afternoon crossed the border into Nebraska where there was a welcome centre which told the story of the Pony Express , which only ran for 2 years before telegraph took over.
Drove Sandhills Scenic Byway through "Broken Bow" a charming little town and spent the night at the delightfully named town "Valentine" , during the evening , we received a tornado/thunder storm warning over the T.V. fortunately it missed us by 30 miles.
We drove to a National Wildlife Refuge , at Fort Niobrara , where we saw a buffalo herd , Elk and Deer as well as as countless prarie dogs. Later that day we crossed the border into South Dakota and at Chamberlain, visited the Lewis and Clark , information centrew , close to the Missourri river , where they had camped on their momentous journey . What very brave souls they were.
After spending the night at Mitchell, we headed up to De Smet , where we visited the homestead where Laura Ingalls Wilder experienced some of the adventures covered in her "Little House on The Prairie " stories .
I learn"t there , that she was 65 years of age , when she started writing these stories !!!!!!!!
