|What is it?
||Scotts Bluff National Monument protects an important natural landmark that guided westward pioneers to their destinations in Oregon and California!
|What makes it beautiful?
||Getting here early in the morning creates some amazing contrasts between the steep rock faces and the flowing prairie below! In the spring, there are yucca and sunflowers blooming everywhere, with whispy clouds floating overheat. After a tranquil hike, whether by trail or by road, you’ll be exposed to sweeping views of the Great Plains in all directions!
