Highpointing: Panorama Point, the highest point in Nebraska – Rooftops of America
We visit (the very windy) Panorama Point, the rooftop of Nebraska. Located on the High Point Bison Ranch in Kimball County, the highest point in Nebraska has an elevation over a mile high at 5,429 feet. The high point lies near one of the great transcontinental transportation corridors of the US, the Great Platte River Road, which has had travelers from the Oregon Trail, the Transcontinental Railroad, the Lincoln Highway, and now Interstate 80. Join us as we explore America and go highpointing!

St. Cecilia's Cathedral - Omaha, Nebraska
St. Cecilia Cathedral, Seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska, United States. Built in stages, in the years 1905 through 1959. Designed in Spanish Renaissance Revival style architecture by noted Nebraska architect and Free Mason Thomas Kimball.
The masterwork of architect Thomas Rogers Kimball, the Cathedral was the tenth largest in the United States at the time of its construction. Built on one of the highest points of the city, its twin towers are a familiar and beloved landmark. In 1959, the Cathedral was declared complete and debt-free, requirements for consecration.
On April 9 of that year, it was consecrated by Archbishop Gerald Bergan and eighty priests. Omaha had been named an archdiocese in 1945, with James Ryan the first archbishop.

America Travel part 1 - Nebraska - YouTube
America is amazing in it's diversity. This is video 1 of our travels through the USA filmed by Cindy in 3D which I sampled down to 2D. Nebraska is in the news now days as farmers reject or support the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to carry Canadian tarsands oil to the Gulf for refining.
It was surprising that we saw pronghorn antelope and some very large mule deer bucks on our drive through here.

Tri State marker at the border of Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming
I recorded this video at the spot where Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming meet. The monument was first established by Oliver N. Chaffee, U.S. Astronomer and Surveyor on August 17, 1869, at the intersection of the Forty-First Parallel of North Latitude with the Twenty-Seventh Degree of West Longitude, several hundred feet away from where Congress intended it to be. So, I'm not sure if this marker is where it's supposed to be or did they slightly alter maps to accommodate it?
Either way, the three counties in question, as well, are Kimball County Nebraska, Laramie County Wyoming, Weld County Colorado.
Just a few kilometres away is located Nebraska's highest point (which you can view in one of my videos - just do a YouTube search, on my channel, for Panorama Point.
Here's my personal webpage about waypoints and navigation:

The 1869 marker actually sits several hundred feet from where it was supposed to be, but it was easier to redraw the map than to move it. It became the official boundary between the states.

Underwood, IA Rest Area West Bound I-80
This Rest Area is West Bound I-80 by Underwood, IA. They have a very nice art work to look at and plenty of tables to sit at. I did notice that there are only two places to grill at. They have a info center at this rest area too. Bath rooms where clean like the rest of the building. I did not go into the info center to see how that looked. I did walk around the outside of building.
Thank-you for all your comments and viewing the video. I have other videos on my YouTube page

The Laser Light Show at Grand Coulee Dam (1/2)
The Laser Light Show at Grand Coulee Dam
The Grand Coulee Dam is the largest electric power-producing facility in the United States and one of the largest concrete structures in the world.
Since May 1989, on summer evenings, the laser light show at Grand Coulee Dam is projected onto the dam's wall. The show includes full-size images of battleships and the Statue of Liberty, as well as some environmental comments.
