Devils Tower, June 12-13

After overnighting in Cody to wash clothes and car, I got to Devils Tower National Monument in northeast Wyoming (pic:  I had a nice camping spot where I could see the tower as the sun set and again in the mist at sunrise.

The Native American names for this place are more fitting I think -- Bear Lodge, Bear Tipi, Bear Hat.  It is a spiritual place and several tribes were using the grounds for traditional ceremonies at the time I was there.  I'm glad that the National Park Service recognizes their right to this sacred site and encourages visitors to give them privacy.
