Our first real hike in a long while! Scotts Bluff Nat'l Monument is in our back yard right now and it makes a pretty backdrop. Scotts Bluff is known for being a landmark on the trail out west. The pioneers passed by knowing they were now a third of the way to their new home, the pony express used the trail and the gold miners traveled the route to the gold rush.
This morning we climbed it and it was nice hike. The weather was awesome and the view was also.
You can see the path we took in this one as we climbed the bluff.
