Looking northeast across ponderosa pine woodlands and rocky escarpments, this camera is located at the Wildcat Hills Nature Center, perched high above the North Platte River Valley and the communities of Scottsbluff and Gering, NE. The Wildcat Hills have been carved and shaped through millennia by forces of wind and water, erosion and deposition. It is a rich and biologically diverse ecosystem that contains both eastern and western species. Rising from the plains, their formations served as monumental landmarks for pioneers who trekked west along the North Platte River following the Oregon Trail. They continue to be a sight to behold today. This camera is retired.
