Devil's Tower

To give you some idea of the scale, this picture shows those columns.  Those little round things on the right?  Those are helmets of those crazy intrepid enough to climb it.

Lovely vacation. 

The debris field around the base?  Basalt boulders that have fallen.  The Visitor's Center says none have fallen recently, but in winter who would know?  The modern, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?"

There is a 1.3 mile loop around the base of the tower and gives you opportunities to see it in various levels of sunlight.

  1. I was there in August 2016. Standing at the base your eyes and brain can't perceive the actual size. There were a bunch of climbers that looked like little colored specks going up the sides. Looking at them through binoculars helped me gain perspective.
