Dya 47, Nebraska, USA

We must reluctantly leave the Yellowstone National Park.....

We are now flying over Nebraska, a state located on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States and Western United States.

Nebraska probably gets its name from the archaic Otoe words Ñí Brásge, meaning "flat water," after the Platte River that flows through the state.

American Indian tribes in Nebraska have included the Iowas, Omahas, Missourias, Poncas, Pawnees, Otoes, and various branches of the Sioux.

Once considered part of the Great American Desert, it is now a leading farming and ranching state.
