This is the Pine Ridge area in northwestern Nebraska, around the towns of Crawford and Chadron. It's a distinctly rural place -- nice scenery, friendly people! Very Happy

These sandstone bluffs are just inside Fort Robinson State Park at Crawford.


Here's the view from on top of those sandstone bluffs. It's about an hour's hike to get up here. Not heavily traveled, but well worth the view. (This is a stitched panorama, 118 degrees side to side. See here and here for larger files with more detail.)


From the backside of the same bluffs, overlooking Crawford.


From Squaw Creek Road, southeast of Crawford.


I hope the color on these comes out OK -- preparing photos on a laptop is always a bit dicey. Enjoy! Very Happy

Technical: Canon A710, PTGui.

Nicely done, Rik, and I'm glad you're getting a chance to rejuvenate your photo genes by doing some photography in a different sort of place than you usually do!

Thanks, Mike!

Yes, it is a bit of a change from my usual position, hunched over a screw table or silhouetted in the glare of a computer monitor. Cool

(Well, I guess the computer monitor is still here, but you get the idea... Laughing )

Ah, life in the heartland of rural America, does it get any better? Very Happy Those bluffs are impressive and look to be extremely dangerous if one is not careful along the edge of them. Great group of images Rik. Scenes like these seem to refresh the eyes and clear the mind somewhat. Thanks Very Happy

Yes, I always do enjoy travelling the States with the American uncles! Very Happy Wink Wink

Great, beautiful and vast country you live in, so many interesting places to visit! Looks like you are gathering quite some miles. Not at all just "fly over country" as some people call it there in the hinterland, if one knows what to look for! I would love to probe that pine forest for insects!

Thanks for sharing it with us, Rik.

Take care!

Hi Rik,
Welcome to the Great State of Nebraska. You've found some of our wonderful scenery and certainly done it justice with your photos. If you make it to the east coast (along the Missouri) stop in for a visit.
Gary

Gary, thanks for the offer, but I'm headed north next. Another time, perhaps. Very Happy
