CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS NEBRASKA! Chimney Rock, Carhenge, Scottsbluff National Monument!
My husband and I are on a 12 day road trip through the United States. In our previous video you'll see the Nebraska Sandhills, which I found a super unique landscape. In this video we see more of the landscapes of Western Nebraska. First, we saw the Chimney Rock, which used to be a landmark for people traveling on the Oregon Trails in the 19th century. Then, we drove up a mountain (yes, we are still in Nebraska!) in Scottsbluff National Monument. Then finally, we got to visit the Carhenge. It's like the Stonehenge, except it is much younger and we know it's purpose. We both used to live in Nebraska, and we dreamt of going there for a while. We thought this was such a cool monument! Enjoy! Subscribe to follow our journey!
