Another shot from our fast closing vacation. This view out the windshield driving north on Hiway 71 in far western Nebraska may seem devoid of eye candy, but it was actually breathtaking in its own way. The smooth rolling hills seemed to go on forever with rarely a fence line interrupting them. And we must have driven for an hour while passing no more than two automobiles. There is a great natural quiet in that area of Nebraska. It almost seems like being on the bottom of the ocean. Incidentally, it was ocean floor some 100 million years ago when the shallow Western Interior Seaway spanned as wide as present day Wyoming and Nebraska and ran north and south from the Arctic Circle to Central America. And for all we know, in another 100 million, it may be a sea floor again.
