2015 – The Year of the Great Plains
As I have brazenly declared, 2015 is The Year of the Great Plains, and I’m dedicating this blog all year to providing information for anyone on where to go to enjoy some Great Plains scenery and recreation. I’ve started the year by mentioning some places that are not far from major Interstate Highways such as Badlands National Park and Theodore Roosevelt National Park.
Not that I’ve run out of ideas, far from it, but I thought now might be a good time to open it up to anyone out there who wants to mention their favorite spots in the Great Plains. I don’t have too many criteria, just that the places be in the United States, east of the Rockies, and west of the 100th meridian (or close to it). Other than that, they could be federal, state, local, or even privately operated areas.
All you have to do is mention it in the comments section. You can just give the name, or if you’re inclined, tell us more about it, and why it’s special to you!
