[Updated: 06/05/2011] SummitPosters, if you like this report, please vote for it, thanks! Check my profile for all my state highpoint reports.

Panorama Highpoint is very close to the Interstate highway, after a very nice drive you will see this sign and the road becomes a little bit rougher, high clearance is recommended (someone in the register book said 'you destroyed my car' ;)

$3 donation is suggested.

This piano-like summit register box is not water-proof, so the notebooks inside are always wet... there was also a Hampton Inn Nebraska keycard inside :)

Quite windy up here, as always I spent about 15 minutes reading the summit registration book, it was a wonderful way to 'meet' state highpointers.

On our way to Denver the weather changes fast... we actually drive in Wyoming for quite a bit.

Highly recommended!

The tri-state area of CO WY and NE is a sick, under-appreciated area. Glad you had a good time!

How long did it take you to drive to/from Pine Bluffs? Google estimates 51 minutes for a mere 17 miles (20 mpg average). I know these are mostly dirt roads, but does it really take that long?

Enjoyed your pics (especially the brewing storm at the end). I'll be visiting next Summer (2012); I'm thinking of taking a waterproof container for the notebooks in the "summit" register.

only about 10 miles are on dirt road, and it's not bad at all.
Great if you could bring a waterproof bag for the notebooks!
