Devils Tower

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

As I said in my introduction, I lived for many years in Colorado, but never saw many of the sights in the area, so I decided to make a few detours on a road trip with one of my sons from Colorado to Virginia. This was the first stop. If it looks familiar, maybe you are recalling the climatic scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. View is to the NW from a little over a mile (1.5 km) away as the crow flies.

Thanks Diego. It is an exceptional place; when I saw the movie many years ago, I assumed that the tower was located somewhere in the Monument Valley area in Arizona. I have several more frames that I will try to get posted in the next few days. Regards, Mark
