Sept. 21 Fort Robinson (Crawford, Nebraska)

Moved on to Fort Robinson State Park. I wanted to explore the fort area, visit the museum and learn about the history of the fort (which is vast – and has both negative and positive aspects). Unfortunately, the main museum was closed for the season so I hope to return some day when it was open. A smaller museum that housed paleontology digs was open. It was small, but interesting. This would be a great place for a family reunion. They have accommodations that will house large gatherings and there is a lot to do.

Campsite at Fort Robinson.

Wow … I may have to change my campsite to one of these by the historical Fort Robinson cemetery. I wonder what I would experience at night?!?!

Looking up towards Mexican Canyon.

You probably can’t see all the coloring in the hills, but they look like they are painted.

Beautiful buttes …

Toadstool Geologic Park and high plains prairie.

See the horizontal fault lines near the top? And then there was a “shift” and the bands continue 30 ft. lower.
