After checking in we drove to our riverside campsite and we were pleasantly surprised. It was beautiful! We were right on the river with a little beach right next to us. It was hot but the wind was blowing 20 mph off the river and it felt wonderful.

Thursday, Kelly went for another bike ride and then after lunch we did some site seeing. We stopped at the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center on the Nebraska side of the dam on our way to the Ashfall Fossil Beds. On the way back, we stopped at Niobrara State Park, just to check it out. (Our park pass from Ashfall was good for all Nebraska state parks). There were some great views there and along the drive back.
