Hike Gallery – 2013-08-28 Devils Tower

Here are the photos from our hike at Devils Tower.

We departed on foot from the Belle Fourche Campground at Devils Tower for a ‘double-loop’ hike along the Valley View/Red Beds/Tower/Red Beds/South Side Trails.  Basically the idea was to do half of the outer loop, the inner loop, and then back to the campground along the outer loop.  Absolutely spectacular morning.

The first bit of the hike went through a prairie dog town

You know it was early by the long shadows 🙂

Parts of the trail had some pretty tall grass.  I guess the long hikes aren’t so popular.

So the question is, how many pictures do you want of the different angles & sides of the same monolith?

Sent one of these photos to our friend Neal back home to share with his son Nathan who just loves running around and squishing dandelion puffs.  These ones were several inches across.
