HP #11, Panorama Point, NE  Sucess!

Hiking snow covered trails on Black Elk yesterday, hanging with the bison at Panorama today. This is great!

Highpoint Bison Ranch surrounds the Highpoint. They have a Bison herd of about 150 head that frolicked, ran, walked to fence in falling snow. Minimal fence kept the bison corralled, only 25 feet away. Do not leave car and approach bison.

After completing the HP visit, I was beginning to head for Kansas and approached a rancher from behind moving his cattle to another pasture because a gate was down and his livestock was loose, some up ahead eating his grass at his ranch house.
He flagged me down, he said I could I drive through, just go slow.
I began and I ended up splitting the herd. He stayed behind me and moved about 12 head, I had the rest of the herd, about 50. They stayed in front of me and would run if I came too close. I knew where the ranch house was located where he needed to get other cattle that escaped and "went home" to his yard. I thought, what the heck, I will drive the large group to that driveway and see what happens. They knew what to do. My first cattle drive was successful. I need to add that to my Dream List and declare it complete. Oh yea, it was cute, two head ran from his group, one by one, and caught my group, they knew who the best cattle driver was. They looked at me as I drove slowly and they passed me on the right side of the vehicle.

Near Tri-Point of Nebraska, Colorado, & Wyoming

High Point #5  Sucess!

My sister and her husband flew out from Utah last night and since there was a bunch of snow on the trails near Boulder we decided to head out to the plains. We first hit the WY-NE-CO tripoint. We then drove over to the Panorama Point. It was cool to see the Mummy Range poking up in the southwest. After Panorama Point we hiked to the Pawnee Buttes so that we could say we did something.

But I made it in a Civic!  Sucess!

The most challenging part of the drive (at least in 2016) was the lack of cell coverage approaching the high point, which required reliance upon instructions about gravel county roads acquired a few miles before...oh, and the ruts in the road with the 5-inch ground clearance of my Honda; but as Allan Quatermain would say, "such is the price of a life of great adventure!"

Desolate location but blissful solitude.  Sucess!

Drove over after a day and night in RMNP. My GPS kept leading me to try to get there from the Colorado side but reality kept intervening. Finally got there to find it completely empty and remote, but what were you expecting? You get a drawer and monument, and you like it. Was pleased to bag #33, and almost done with the drive ups.

a storm rolled in  Sucess!

got here as a storm was rolling in. a thunderstorm on the prairie, while beautiful, is not really something you want to be stuck in. made it back to the main road just as it started to rain.
