Wyomings' Devil Tower-Totally Out of This World

Updated on April 8, 2012

Rising from relatively flat area in Wyoming near Hulett is THE best thing to see in this state. It is one of these formations that words simply fail to convey it. On first approach, it is alien-like,as this monstrous rock protrudes in a near vertical fashion some 1267 ft. As one gazes up, one cannot help to think it has some sort of meaning, maybe it was an old alien landing site at the summit, 5100 ft above sea level. This rock is not like a normal mountain, it is almost sculptured! The side of the mountain is comprised of long columns about 2 ft. wide that go from the base to top, some with 4-5 chiseled sides. The climb is only for the experience and over 400,000 a year visit this monument, which is awe inspiring. The park comprises of over 1200 acres and is in the northeast section of the state.

Close to park is the small town of Sundance, which has local camping and hotels to stay in. Camping in the park is available with 50 sites @$12 a night. Entrance fee is $10 for day use. For hikers, there are eight miles of trails, mostly flat.

      I would love to see this up close. I always remember the movie with Richard Dreyfuss when i see this tower. I didn't realize it was to tall. Great topic and well covered.

      First time I remember seeing Devil's Tower was in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Richard Dreyfuss' character kept trying to make a model of it. Awesome pictures!

      There's no way I'd EVER attempt a climb like that! Nope!

      Great Hub, Perry!

      Great photos. This monument is certainly a natural wonder. I haven't had the opportunity to see it in person yet but hopefully I soon will. I would sure like to see you expand on this hub and give us some more information.
