Vacation Day 35/90: Devils Tower, Wyoming
Monday, June 16, 2014
Today we are off to see Devils Tower in Moorcroft, Wyoming. My husband is a big geology fan so passing up a volcanic extrusion just wasn't going to happen! It also is a national monument so I can get my National Parks passport stamped, which is the highlight for me! Love looking through that book, seeing all the national parks, monuments, and historic sites we've been to.
Of course we'll hike today also! We are hoping to do all 7 miles of trails around the tower. We will NOT be climbing up. In June they don't allow climbing as a gesture of respect to Native Americans who believe it is sacred site. Ha, if we were REALLY respectful climbing wouldn't be allowed at all!
Tomorrow we are off to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Ten days of NO electricity, NO water, NO shower houses and of course, NO internet. So I'll be out of touch....
We have a half marathon in Estes Park on Sunday, and we plan to do a lot of scenic drives and hiking while we are there. Later, Sparkfriends!
