Nebraska is usually thought of as a flat land filled with corn fields. Although this is accurate, the far southwestern portion of the state has a few ridges and hills. One, named Panorama Point rises to a total height of 5,424 feet above sea level making it the highest point in Nebraska.

I visited this highpoint on a highpointing road trip with my good friend Rich Reister and both of our brothers, Craig and Scott. In all, we visited five highpoints and traveled all the way to N. Dakota from Dallas, TX. We arrived at Panorama Point at dawn after driving all night in our rented minivan, later to be nicknamed Texas Stank. The view at sunrise was breathtaking. We hung out for a while before heading into for breakfast at a local diner. Boy did we feel out of place compared to the regulars at that joint.
