Geo-Road Trip 2011: Famous Formations

Our road trip took us to Nebraska next where we saw some historically significant rock formations. Rock formations like these were often used by pioneers, trappers and travelers to help navigate the the difficult journey across the west.

Here's Court House Rock & Jail Rock (sorry that they are so small in the frame. They were really far away from the road!):

And some information about them:

Next is Chimney Rock:

And its historical marker:

Which was next to monuments commemorating the Oregon Trail:

And the Pony Express:

Tomorrow the journey continues with more pictures from the trip!
