Kinda Square #5: Close Encounters

This photo invokes memories of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, so although no aliens greeted us, I’m submitting it for Becky’s October Kinda Square challenge:

Oops, I lied! We did encounter an alien – in the souvenir store! (He didn’t greet us but I did have my husband take a photo of me with him!)

In fact, I don’t think I ever heard of Devil’s Tower until I saw that movie. I suspect it’s the same for a lot of people. I wonder if after the movie was released the number of tourists increased substantially? Probably! We had not intended to or thought of going there on this trip we took to the Dakotas in 2017, but when we saw the advertising and realized how close it was, we decided to take a side trip! I’m glad we did!

    1. It’s Devils Tower National Monument, about 30 miles into Wyoming from the South Dakota border. There’s an informative visitors center with stories by Native American tribes about this structure. And if you like mountain climbing, well, I saw several people climbing up it!
