Wednesday in Wyoming -- February 17, 2016

Wyoming is home to not only the first national park but also the first national monument.  While Hollywood made Devils Tower famous in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," it was a sacred spot to Native Americans well before that and draws thousands of tourists each year.

Some of those who visit the tower come to climb it.  Would you want to ascend those practically vertical sides?


  1. It looks really amazing and I'd really wanna see it with my own eyes. Though I wouldn't be able to climb it.

    1. I can't imagine climbing it either, but I highly recommend the walk around the perimeter.
