Devil's Tower - Wyoming

      After visiting Mt. Rushmore, we headed on through Wyoming.  Just West of Sundance, WY we were able to visit Devil's Tower, a massive volcanic rock rising 1,267 feet above the Belle Fourche river.   Devil's Tower was proclaimed the first National Monument by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906.  It really is quite impressive!

It was also interesting to pass a large Prairie-Dog settlement on the way up to the tower.
