Devil's Tower 721
Information on Devil's Tower
Day 10 – Monday August 27th
We had breakfast at the Best Western. I was expecting it to be a continental breakfast but it was a hot breakfast. It was really good. They had a large selection on their buffet. We left Sheridan heading toward South Dakota.
When we were in Moorcroft Wyoming, we saw a sign for the West Texas Trail Museum. Mama wanted to stop so we went into town and found it. It was interesting however it was not about the West Texas Cattle Trail it was about the history of the town of Moorcroft. It was free but they do accept donations.
When we were in Moorcroft, we decided to take a detour and head to Devil’s tower since we had never been there. The temperature was 109 F so we didn’t stay to long. They had hiking trails to get up close to Devil’s Tower but we didn’t do them because of the heat. We just saw Devil’s tower and visited the visitor center. Driving in and out of the park we pasted a large Prairie Dog Town. I had never seen prairie dog that close. They reminded me of large squirrels.

After crossing into South Dakota, we headed to Keystone South Dakota and checked into our hotel. There were still several hours of daylight left, so we went to Crazy Horse memorial. I was impressed with the work they had done. It is starting to look like the model. We checked out the visitor center then stayed around to see the Indian dancers and the laser light shown on Crazy Horse after dark. I wasn’t that impressed with the light show. After the show we went back to the hotel in Keystone.
