The benchmark at the Three Corners...

Panorama Point - Nebraska Highpoint

Lucky for us the way home passed by another obscure state highpoint. Panorama Point was pretty in its own way but not worth a trip west on its own. We headed south from Pine Bluff, Wyoming across the prairie about 10 miles to the highpoint. After paying a small entry fee (its on private land) we found our way to the top of Nebraska at 5464'. At the top we read a small pamphlet informing us that we were only a couple miles from the equally exciting "Three Corners" where the states of Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming meet. We just couldn't pass that up so we went off to find it. The Three Corners monument sits in another field and is extremely hard to find. There are no signs along the road so we had to rely on our GPS to find the state lines. The effort finding it made it all the more unique when we finally got there. Together the two points combined for a very enjoyable visit...
