Ascent Trip Report

We stopped by Panorama point after spending a night and morning driving from Missouri through severe thunderstorms. The morning was a bit foggy and misty. We drove in on the Nebraska side which features about 30 miles of unpaved roads. Leaving we went out via Wyoming, which only requires about 5 miles on dirt roads, the rest on the paved CR-164. There is a self serve $3 per person entry fee at the entrance. My two sons quickly discovered that the fence nearby the highpoint was electric. A nice walk along the fence brought us to a place where we could see a herd of buffalo. Subsequently sauntering back down to the entrance point made me feel like I had "hiked" a little bit to achieve the "peak". The location is very peaceful and beautiful in its own way.
