Alzada, MT High 89 Low 52
We are about 40 miles from Devil’s Tower, so yesterday morning we grabbed the pups and took off for an adventure.
The road has plenty of curves but I did find one stretch of straight road.
You come around a curve and this is what you see.
Devil’s Tower is American’s first National Monument. It was supposedly named Devil’s Tower by a Colonel Dodge who misinterpreted the Native American name of the tower to be Bad God’s Tower which he shortened to Devil’s Tower.
Does this bring to mind Close Encounters of the Third Kind?
When we got to the park there was a line of vehicles waiting to go into the park. Way too many people for me. We have been here before so I told Jim I just didn’t want to deal with all the crowds.
We got some ice cream, took a picture of this magnificent monument and then drove down to the little town of Hulett, WY.
Saw some fall colors on our way home.
And had a beautiful sunset.
