Devils Tower Overview

Devils Tower in Wyoming is a large rock monilith that was formed by ancient volcanic activity. The theory is that magma welled up in an ancient volcano, hardened, and eventually the volcano eroded away, leaving the hard magma center. The interesting black lines are columnar joints which tell the story of weathering and the cooling history of rock.

Devils Tower is a popular mecca for technical rock climbers, but has hiking trails all around it for those who just want to admire the view. The tower was featured in the Stephen Spielberg movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" An interesting stop for any visit to Northeast Wyoming!
