Nebraska's Big Rodeo 2014
Nebraska's Big Rodeo in Burwell July 23-26, 2014. We had a great time there a few years ago. We did a road trip from Harvard (my Dad's home town), up to Burwell (my Mom's hometown) for the rodeo, then through South Dakota (the Badlands, Wall Drug, Mt. Rushmore, etc.). It's a route that is certainly off the beaten tourism path!
