Devil’s Tower in Wyoming is often associated with Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”. I have to admit that ever since seeing that movie as a kid I’ve always wanted to visit. Last year I drove way out of my way en route to Glacier National Park in order to see this amazing geological formation. Upon arrival I was treated to a fantastic cloudy sky that accentuated the scene. The one thing that I was pleasantly surprised by when I got there was seeing “Prairie Dog Town”, a decent sized plot of land at the base of Devil’s tower filled with Prairie Dog dens. It was pretty fun to just hang out and watch the Prairie Dogs run around doing their thing. I’ll have to be sure to hit this location again in 5 years or so to show my son, who is due in two months..
