Here’s this week’s Favorite Place: Devil’s Tower.

Devil’s Tower can be seen for miles before you get to it. It is quite weird to look at as you are driving across this empty section of northeast Wyoming. It’s considered part of the Badlands. In my opinion the best part of this area is how it fires the imagination. First I think about what it would be like to come upon this thing in slow motion as if you were traveling on a horse or a covered wagon or even on foot.

It’s no wonder the Indians had many legends about the place. It’s also called Bear Lodge and considered a sacred site by American Indians. Once you are up close it is quite a spectacular sight. The base of the tower is a mile around and there is a nice hiking trail visitors can take. If you are planning a road trip out west this should be on your list of Favorite Places.
