Day 4- April 27, 2017
As we continued to head west, the more snowy it became at the tops of the highest hills. We had to take a selfie at the state border, we reached it by 1:50 PM. After a stop in Aladdin at 2:06 PM, Devils Tower became visible by 3:30 PM, partially obscured by the incoming mist and rain.
There was also a marker at this pull-off giving an overview of Devils Tower.
This view was seen shortly before entering the park. Also in the view are cattle grazing, a tranquil scene.
We’re here! It is really amazing to see it in person. We arrived at 4:04 PM. Get a souvenir at the Devils Tower Trading Post.
The staff at the booth went off shift at 4:00, so we just took care of business at the self-service kiosk and drove into the park.
The road curves to the left and we saw Prairie Dog Town. They made cute little squeaks when they saw us.
Closeup of the cute little guy, they are quite skittish.
Another great view of the tower from within the park.
We could hear thunder in the distance, it was time to go. One more picture before leaving, we tried flagging down that space ship but they didn’t see us 🙂 We love that movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
