Devil's Tower National Monument is situated in the northeast corner of Wyoming. It is probably best known for the role it played in Steven Spielberg's 1977 movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".
I like this picture with the Turkey Vulture included in with the tower. There were a lot of Turkey Vultures riding the thermals around the tower. I do not know what they feed on but there were quite of few climbers on the tower.
If you think they are nuts, consider this. Look closely in the picture below and in the center and you can see a wooden ladder.
Here is a close-up.
Falling and becoming turkey food probably is a rare occurance for climbers what with all the safety gear they have these days. But what if a portion of the tower decides to peal away unexpectedly, like in this photo.
Believe me, it gave me the willies just to stand there and take this picture. I mean, what is holding the remaining rock in place? I moved on right away.
