[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
You are looking at America's first national monument...Devil's Tower. To geologists, it's an igneous intrusion rising 1267 feet above the Belle Fourche River Valley in Wyoming. To American Indians, it's Mato Tipila, "Bear Lodge." I stumbled onto it, by accident, driving west on I-90 from South Dakota. The sight of it nearly blew my socks off. Like some extra-terrestrial in my path. I pulled over to the side of the highway and marveled at it for at least a half an hour. All alone with the Devil.

NIce picture but it lacks any inspiration. The tower itself it smack in the middle of the picture and there is nothing else intersting about it with lighting, foregrounds, or maybe a sunset or something could make it better. A neat place though.
