Aug 5, 2015 - Devils Tower and Ham'n'Jam in Hulett

Good morning from the beautiful Black Hills of Southwest South Dakota. Today we are up and at 'em early as we have a long ride planned - we are heading West into Wyoming to see the Devils Tower. Devils Tower was the first designated National Landmark but is more famous as being the "home base" for the alien's mothership in the 1970's movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". It just so happens that on the Wednesday of rally week, the tiny nearby town of Hulett holds their own rally called the "Ham 'n' Jam". So we are going to make a day...

Jun 21, 2015 - Devil's Tower

Devil's Tower. The very name conjures up images of the Spielberg movie Close Encounters...here I put my vote for never watching movies. They poison your mind! I can't even look at a monument without putting it in a movie!! And playing the five note soundtrack in my mind! I can just see Richard Dreyfus maniacally carving his mashed potatoes and the crazed look in his eye seeing the Devil's Tower. This is worth a trip, although it is about in the middle of nowhere. Did you know it is our first national monument? Thanks TR! We need another...

Jul 19, 2014 - Wyoming Towns Tour

We visited a lot of tiny towns on our way to visit the Devils Tower Monument. Some of them had populations of less than ten people, all of them were surrounded with beautiful scenery. It was a fabulous drive. I am adding pictures of all the towns we drove through, our favorite town was Hulett. We stopped at the Ponderosa Café and had lunch before continuing our drive of about 200 miles. Hulett has a population of 408. Located on Highway 24, nine miles north of Devils Tower National Monument, Hulett is set in the beautiful Black Hills of...

Jun 13, 2013 - Devils Tower

We only spent one day here, but we really enjoyed the day. Most of you will recognize the Tower from the movie Close Encounters of a Third Kind, but there is an interesting history to it. First, Devils Tower was the first declared United States National Monument, established on September 24, 1906, by President Theodore Roosevelt. It had long been a sacred place to the many Indian tribes in the area. While each tribe has a different specific name for it, they all include some reference to bears [Bear's House (Cheyenne, Crow), Bear's Lair...

Oct 8, 2010 - Devils Tower National M.

Early morning visit this morning to the ‘rock’ in the park. Found a new dog that someone left tied outside of the restroom. I guess they just forgot the dog when they came out. Cute terrier mix, I first thought to name him Devil or Tower, but I looks kind of Scruffy. His collar listed is name as Liz Fay, what kind of name is that for a terrier? Great to have another passenger besides Chloe, especially one that does not talk. This ‘rock’ is a wonder; I really enjoyed the walk around and the morning climb. Sorry I did not get pictures from...

Aug 16, 2010 - Devil's Tower Loop Ride

After a lovely church service in a historic Episcopal church in downtown Buffalo, WY, we took off from Buffalo, and headed for South Dakota. We arrived in Spearfish, SD in time to ride over to enjoy that last evening of the Sturgis Rally for 2010. We had planned our trip this way on purpose since we’d rather ride the great roads without thousands of other motorcyclists. One man we met at Chris’ Campground mentioned that during the week, it had been more of a “parade” than a “ride” since it was so crowded. Our campground is not crowded now...

Aug 17, 2009 - Lunch in Hulett, Wyoming

As we leave Devils Tower, we are hungry and the nearest town is Hulett, Wyoming, population 408. Someone said that Hulett had a Ponderosa restaurant that was pretty good. As we drove into town, it looked pretty empty up and down main street. We found the "Ponderosa" but it was closed. The bar was open only. The bar said "bikers welcome." We decided not to go in because we didn't come for the bar. We had parked in front of the bank and looked up and down the street for somewhere to eat. It was almost like a ghost town - nothing looked open....
