Things that surprised me in the last 400 miles or so.   All at their respective and various levels.

1. There are hills in Nebraska!  After hundreds of miles of flatlands I thought they were mountians and got out to take a picture at a rest stop.... it's the fuzzy one bellow at 12X optical zoom.  Can someone tell me the name of these "mountains" that run parallel to I-80?

2.  I saw a real life dirt road!!!!  =D  I wish I took a picture, but there weren't any exits from the highway.

3. North eastern Colorado is BARREN.  No crops to speak of... just miles and miles of shrubs and grass.  Also I'm defiantly gaining elevation - loads of rolling hills.  I did see a ton of windfarms, but they were too far off in the distance to capture in a picture.

4.  It was 52 degrees and Northern Colorodo!  If you notice the pictures all of that snow I took pictures of in Eastern Nebraska is gone.  I sat a a reststop like a cat--only in a tee-shirt and jeans--soaking up the sun while i made a few phone calls.

On to Denver!!  90 miles to go till a real mountain range!  wooo!  If I'm lucky soem sunset pics of my arrival to the Rockies.
