Panorama Point is the highest natural point in Nebraska. It is at an elevation of 5,429 feet (1,655 m) above sea level. It is located in southwestern Kimball County, near the point where Nebraska and Wyoming meet on Colorado's northern border. Despite its name and elevation, Panorama Point is not a mountain or a hill. It is a low rise on the High Plains. A stone marker, saying that the elevation is 5,424 feet (1,653 m),[3] and a guest register are located at the top of the drive. From the point people can see the nearby state corner marker, and a big plains landscape with the Rocky Mountains in the western distance. Panorama Point is located on the High Point Bison Ranch, which lets visitors drive to the point as long as they avoid the bison and pay a fee.[4]
