With our dear friends Matt and Jean, we made the pilgrimage to Nebraska’s most well known citizen. Chimney Rock is as close to a rock star (yeah, I said rock star) as you can find in the state and acted as a key guidepost on the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails and guided many early settlers along their path to the wonders in the West.
Chimney Rock stands almost 300 feet tall, a stark contrast to the remainder of flatland Nebraska. Originally referred to as “Elk Penis” rock by the less demure natives in the area, the rock is featured on Nebraska’s state quarter and, other than corn and sturdy farm boys, it has become the defining visual of the state.
