Following White Cloud I made a brief, like ten minutes brief, return to Nebraska.
First, though, I had to stop at the point of the beginning -the spot where surveying of Nebraska and Kansas literally begins. The actual spot is on top of a steep bluff so I just took a picture of the state line. Back in 2008 I stopped at the more famous point of beginning at the corner of Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania awhile back.
Before crossing the bridge into Missouri I took a swing through what is left of downtown Rulo, Nebraska. It was pretty desolate, Rulo's population peaked at 877 a century ago, but I liked the 1939 WPA auditorium.
On to Missouri!
