Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower National Monument. Can anyone of my generation see this and not think of a giant pile of mashed potatoes (built by Richard Dreyfuss in “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind”)? Photo by Gary Stone. Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 2/1/16.

Devils Tower   1 comment

America’s first national monument, Devils Tower is a geologic feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie in Wyoming. David Lane captured this amazing 16-image panorama of the monument illuminated by the Milky Way and green airglow. Of visiting Devils Tower, David says: “From ancient stories of the Pleiades taking refuge at the top to the generations of Native Americas that held it sacred, it had a deep sense of age and a stoic nature that impressed me. It’s so unexpected, so large in person, so steeped in traditions.” Posted on Tumblr by the US Department of the Interior, 11/13/14.

Devils Tower National Monument   Leave a comment

Designated a National Monument in 1906 by President Teddy Roosevelt, Wyoming’s Devils Tower was the victim of a typographical error at birth. As the National Park Service’s website puts it:

When the proclamation establishing Devils Tower was published, the apostrophe was unintentionally dropped from “Devil’s”—and this clerical error was never officially corrected.
