Sweeping across central Nebraska from west to east, the Platte River valley presents such an impressively flat landscape that it provided the state with its name. “Nebraska” derives from a Native American word meaning “flat water” or “broad water.”
On either side of the Platte valley, much of the rest of Nebraska consists of gently rolling plains.
In the eastern third of the state, in an area known as the Dissected Till Plains, ancient glaciers laid down a blanket of rock and clay. Over thousands of years, the wind brought fine silt, or loess (pronounced LUSS), which settled on the blanket and further enriched the soil. Huge accumulations of this windblown sediment cover the Loess Plains in the central part of the state, south of the Platte River, as well. These loess-covered lands have excellent soil for growing wheat and corn.
North of the Platte River, under a coat of verdant grasses, are ancient sand dunes known as the Sand Hills. This vast treeless region makes up nearly one-fourth of the state and provides prime range land for cattle.
Nebraska’s most idiosyncratic terrain is in the western panhandle, where erosion has carved the rolling hills in surprising ways. Unlikely spires, such as Chimney Rock in the far west, accompany the occasional butte or canyon. The greatest concentration of these is in the far northwestern corner of the state, in Nebraska’s badlands.
