Nebraska National Forest: Black Hills Overlook Trail

Today Noelle and I hit the road headed south into Nebraska and “the Good Life”, as the state slogan attests. Our first stop was Chadron State Park. There we drove through the park and into the Nebraska National Forest where we started our hike of the Black Hills Overlook Trail.
It was a nice hike, with some great views.
The views weren’t of the Black Hills though, they were views of the surrounding buttes and forests. After our hike we headed into Chadron for lunch at a nice Mexican restaurant.

After lunch we headed over to the Museum of the Fur Trade. I’d seen advertisements for this place on billboards and have always been intrigued by it. Today we finally paid it a visit.
The museum had a lot of interesting exhibits and the story of the fur trade was well interpreted. After our visit there we went grocery shopping, bought some beer, then headed north back into South Dakota.
