Nebraska is derived from a Native American word meaning "flat water", referring to the Platte River.  Nebraska's terrain rises gradually from the prairies in the east to the foothills of the Rockies in the west.  The land is drained primarily by the Platte River.  Chimney Rock National Historic Site, located along the Oregon Trail, is visible from miles away.  Other Nebraska landmarks include the Scotts Bluff and Agate Fossil Beds National Monuments.  For Nebraska travel and tourism information, visit the official Nebraska tourism site and Nebraska Atlas.
