Devils Tower can be seen for a long time before you actually get to it. There were a few theories of how it got there, they don't really know. We like the Indian story of the girls who were being chased by bears, they got to the tower and as the bears aproached the tower rose out of the ground. The bears scratched at the tower but could not climb it, they made all the ridges in the tower. The girls went into the sky and became a constelation.

The path around the tower is just over a mile long and easy walking. We got up pretty close to the tower, only the registered hickers can walk on the rocks. We got real close to a deer, it was not skitish at all.

It became a national monument in 1906, no rocks have fallen off the tower since then.
