So im flying out to Denver then driving to Nebraska on the 20th for the Solar Eclipse, im figuring out where would be a great shot. So far I have two ideas in mind. First is the Wildcat Hills (where were staying) second would be Scotts Bluff Monument. For either one I need to be somewhere high. These are just two places I have came across with just a bit of research, but if any locals are willing to share some spots they think would be good please let me know! id truly appreciate it.

I think you just need to be in the path of totality. I live in Nebraska and there aren't too many forests or mountains to block the view. Scotts Bluff has the bluff as a high point.

Seems to me that being lower than the surrounding land would be better than being above any interesting topography.
