Devils Tower National Monument

Devils Tower is the core of an ancient volcano which was exposed by erosion over the years. It dominates the lanscape in the area, rising 867 feet from its base, 5112 feet above sea level. The base diameter is 1000 feet.


Devils Tower off in the distance. It's still probably 10 miles away at this point.

Same place, wider view.

We were done with Devils Tower pretty quickly since we still had a lot of ground to cover. It would be nice to walk some of the trails that go up closer to the tower one that goes around it.
