Aug 1, 2013 - On the Road to Jackson Hole

We did a lot of driving and viewing of nature today. After a trip up Devil's Tower, we ditched all the Sturgis bound bikes and continued west. The road led through Buffalo up into the Big Horn mountains. A pretty drive to 9,000 ft. was completed. The drive down was even better. A cute little town of Tensleep offered great views. Continuing on, we went through Thermopolis. I think the name of this town is totally strange. They have a giant thermo hot spring there. A little driver switch and we were back on the road through Wind Canyon and...

Found one of those camping symbols (a tent) in a place called Buffalo, SD which is not too far from Bison SD... go figure. As we drove through the 'town' of Buffalo (population 360) there was a...

It's in the Doing!

Jun 25, 2006 - Devils Tower, Wyoming

Devils Tower is a sacred site to nearly a dozen Indian tribes, and the legends and beliefs about it's origins are great stories. Most of them center on a bear or bears that plague a variety of Indian children or tribes, and about their escape from the bears by climbing the mountain. The differences from each tribes legend makes fascinating insights in their culture and myths. The tower is somewhere between 30 and 80 million years old, and is molten magma that cooled beneath the earth's crust, and then was thrust up through the surface at...
