We did shopping (including a very kewl bead store that had thousands of brass stampings!!!! ) and Zip Lining - in the Rockies!

That night we spent in Kearney Ne, and the next morning we hit the The Archway, a museum dedicated to how America expended via traveling the North Platte River over the last 150 years approximately. It's a self guided tour - they gave you wireless headsets so you go at your own pace through the exhibits. You start by going up an escalator into a mock up of a cover wagon and then walk through the exhibits while the headset "tunes" into each sections' story.
It's a really interesting way to put together exhibits. if you are out in that Area it's worth the hour or so of your time.
It's built over I-80, and Jerry and I have passed under the Arch several times in the last few years, and wanted to figured it out.

And finally, Home! We always cheer in the car when we see the sign, cause while we enjoyed the other 9 states we traveled through, there really isn't anyplace like home -
Jerry actually has a saying about this. Iowa -- great place to live, but you wouldn't want to visit there. He's being tongue in cheek of course , as Iowa has lots of great sights to offer, but his point is we always want to come home to Iowa.
