What’s Left of This Abandoned Ski Resort in Nebraska is Totally Captivating

In northeast Nebraska, the ghost of a grand dream sits silent and empty. Devils Nest, an area so named for the outlaws who hid there in the 1800s, sits at the banks of the Lewis and Clark River. In the 1960s, a group of developers decided that this unique location would be the perfect place for an upscale ski resort and recreation area.
