Devils Tower is a huge piece of igneous rock poking 1,267 feet out of the eastern Wyoming plains. I drove here from Rapid City, South Dakota during one of the most memorable road trips of my life. I stayed over night at the campground in the back of my rented Jeep and was quite cold. The next morning I was greeted with bright blue skies and warmth. I made my way around the monolith for about an hour, then took this shot on my way back to Rapid City. Just amazing.
