Jun 5, 2018 - Deadwood to Ranchester via Devils Tower

Left FishnFry Campgrounds in Deadwood and set out to see Devils Tower. Truly majestic!!! This tower was formed underground some 50 million years ago by magna forced into sedimentary rocks and cooled under ground. After 2 or 3 million years, erosion has left us with the tower. It is 867 ft. tall and about 1000 ft. in diameter at the base. This is considered to be the Americas First Monument.
