Taking the road less traveled, we left Colorado not via the interstate, but rather Highway 71, two lane blacktop all the way to Scottsbluff, Nebraska. Our next stop, The Barnanew B&B, was aptly named for it was an old horse barn which had been thoroughly modernized into four bed and bath suites sharing a pleasant “rendez-vous room” lounge. It is situated on a large farmstead with views of the Scottsbluff National Monument. If you are feeling really adventurous, you could sleep in one of the caravan-style wagons:

The B&B was filled with Native American and Western artifacts, including modern work done by friends of the owners:

Our hosts, Cher and Allan Maybee, are experts on the history of the area.  On Allan’s suggestion, we went into town to The Emporium for the Sunday night “around-the-table” communal style dining:

 What a treat! Fantastic food and very sociable companions. We were completely blown away by the hospitality of both The Barnanew and The Emporium
