Relaxing Wyoming walking tours around Devil’s Tower monument in Wyoming.

Devils Tower National Monument, Wyoming – City Walks – Nature Walks – Treadmill Travel Walking Tour

The second stop on our East bound and down road trip was Devil’s Tower National Monument, also known as Bear Lodge to many native people. We’d been before and the weather was fantastic on this visit. It’s a quiet 1.3 mile walk around the volcanic plug. It has a lot of interesting history to it and is sacred to many Native American tribes. I love the afternoon light and the ponderosa pine forest.

It rises 1,267 feet (386 m) above the Belle Fourche River, standing 867 feet (264 m) from summit to base. Native American names for the monolith include “Bear’s House” or “Bear’s Lodge”. The name “Devil’s Tower” originated in 1875 during an expedition led by Colonel Richard Irving Dodge, when his interpreter reportedly misinterpreted a native name to mean “Bad God’s Tower”. All information signs in that area use the name “Devils Tower”, following a geographic naming standard whereby the apostrophe is omitted.
