Seems each place we’ve been to, I fall in love with the area and don’t want to leave. But people kept saying that we needed to see Devils Tower and we still needed a geocache in Wyoming. First, even though we didn’t go to the Crazy Horse exhibit, we could see it from the road. Still lots of work to be done there
Then it was on to Wyoming. The rest area had great exhibits and a geocache.
We arrived at the Devils Tower KOA and were thrilled with our site! What a view out the back window.
This impressive rock has mystified people through the ages. Indians consider it a sacred place and come there to pray. They say it was a great tree that grew quickly to save seven sisters from an attacking bear. According to the legend, those seven sisters can be seen in the night sky as the Pleiades. Scientists have called it the core of an ancient volcano or an igneous intrusion.
To think of this beautiful earth we are on as filled with hot, molten rock is disconcerting at times. Especially when looking up at such a massive piece of rock. Look how it dwarfs us.
Here is the tower in the evening light.
Then, Matt caught this shot in the morning light the next day as I drove towards our next stop.
Onward to Montana! Yet another state that neither of us had ever been to. A lot of firsts have been happening for us on this trip. I guess it was about time we saw this country!
Here is a photo that Matt shot through the windshield as I drove in Montana. Looks at those mountains covered in snow in June.
More Matt and Janine adventures to come!!
