We, like a lot of other folks right now, have been feeling cooped up in the house. With nice weather, we felt the desire to get out and get a little fresh air and exercise and so we headed over to "the Monument" for a hike along the Summit Road, which is currently closed to vehicular traffic. With a wide roadway, we figured the road would allow for plenty of room for social distancing in this time of Covid 19.
We arrived to a parking lot that was more packed with cars than usual. Even as we approached the monument, we could see people, little specks from a distance, hiking the trails. We parked in the far section of the lot and started our way on the road.
Hiking the road gave us a different perspective of Scotts Bluff and Mitchell Pass compared to what we are used to.
Near tunnel 3 we stopped to admire the view.
