We had an easy and pretty drive to Devil's Tower. We drove through the historic town of Deadwood. We thought about stopping but with a motorhome and tow vehicle, it just wasn't easy so we kept moving. We drove up I-90 and then cut across to go through the town of Sundance, WY on our way to Devil's Tower. What a beautiful drive!
Greg had work to do so after we got settled in at the Devil's Tower KOA (which is at the base of the tower), the kids and I drove up to the tower, did the Junior Ranger thing, and went on a mile long hike around the base of the Tower. It is so beautiful there. The Tower is amazing . . . you are definitely filled with awe when you look at it. While the kids worked on their Jr. Ranger booklets, I sat in front of the Visitor's Center and just stared up at it.
When we got back, the kids did the playground thing while Greg and I wrangled dinner. The Devil's Tower KOA shows Close Encounters of the Third Kind every night around 9pm. We all bundled up in blankets and watched it. Really fun to watch that movie, knowing the actual tower was looming over us.
Next stop ... Billings, MT.
