Pawnee Grasslands

Spent a couple days near the Pawnee National Grasslands.  We opted to stay in a RV camp in Wyoming and make day trips to the grasslands.  We were sort of dumb as we thought there was some grand entrance to the area.  There is not.  There are many county roads that criss cross the grasslands.  Much of the western half is taken up with commercial operations like wind farms.  This is the result of BLM allowing this on Forest Service lands.  When we finally figured out how to get to the Buttes we were able to take a small hike.  Our previous visit there many years ago, we were able to park very close to the base of the Buttes - I don’t don’t know if they have eliminated that parking spot.

We also snooped around the area including ending up in Nebraska !    The roads criss cross the tri-state area freely.  Ended up at the highest point in Nebraska and also seeing a few Bison at their watering hole

Our last nite there was punctuated by the drama of a hail storm.  Airstreams and Hail storms do not mix well.  We were lucky as all we had was pea sized hail.  Much larger and we would then be faced with a multiple week stay at the Airstream Hospital in Jackson Center, Ohio.
