The drive was lovely and the road was nice. The scenery was beautiful - including mountains and lakes and snow. The day was pretty too with blue sky and sunny skies - but not really warm - only about 62 degrees at the highest. Tried to get a spot at the Waterfront campground in Seward but it was full...
