Alright, last but not least I have to share about our South Dakota, turned Wyoming, vacation stop! I haven’t ever been to Devil’s Tower, I have seen pictures, but it was another few hours farther West.
We decided that if we got going on our last full day at a reasonable time, it would be worth it to make the drive over the border to Wyoming because we were already so close.
Man was it worth it! What a site!
It is pretty amazing seeing these rolling hills and then this tower of rock dominating the landscape!
Once we parked there was a trail that some of us decided to hike around the base of the tower.
You almost can’t see it, but at the far left of the tower (picture above) a little more than halfway down, there was a climber. There were several actually and they need permission to go up! I am sure Isaac is planning a trip back there some day to do just that!
Apparently there is a wooden ladder on one side of the tower…you could look through these spyglass deals and see it. Karlena didn’t fully understand she needed her eye open though! 🙂
Birds circling the top.
This tree was so interesting and unique I had to take a picture!
Here are the prayer bundles that they warned about touching!
The hike around the tower was a little over a mile. Karlena led the way most of the time.
It was a wonderful way to spend our last day of vacation!
Have you ever been to Devil’s Tower?
