While we were in South Dakota, we make a side trip to Wyoming to see Devil’s Tower.

They think it was made way under the ground by lava, but it never came above ground.

At least until after the ground eroded away.

There’s a story about early in the parks life about how they tried to get people to come and see it.  Two men put wood in the cracks of the tower and made a ladder all the way to the top.  People came.  They made it to the top.  You can still see some of the wood they used.

Hubby and the kids got to go to the top of the trail next to the tower.  We had Eli with us so I got to stay in the car with him and read.  So we all had fun.

May God bless your socks off!
