This Jaw Dropping Place In Nebraska Will Blow You Away

Tucked away in far northwestern Nebraska, within the borders of the Oglala National Grassland, lies a place so enchanting and surprising that you might wonder if you’re still in Nebraska…or even if you’re still on Earth. Toadstool Geologic Park looks like the setting of a sci-fi movie – a post-apocalyptic landscape, perhaps, or the surface of a distant planet.

This video from NET Nebraska is a wonderful exploration of the unique landscape and its history.

It’s hard not to simply stand and stare in awe of the prehistoric landscape. Toadstool happens to be on the Fossil Freeway and contains perfectly preserved tracks of long-extinct creatures. There is something special about standing in this place, knowing that ancient animals once walked the same path.
