Nice photo! We visited Devil's Tower in 1990.

We had to find a copy of that movie (local library!!) and watch it again once we got back home.

I think my wife enjoyed Devil's Tower about as well as anything on our latest trip.

To the OP - that is a great side trip to Devil's Tower if you have the time. A bit of a remote drive but well worth the time.

Then of course, Mt Rushmore and down the road from there, Chief Crazy Horse monument. The museum at Crazy Horse is well worth the time, too.

A little different view of Rushmore:

X2.

We went the opposite way. We went to Mount Rushmore, Crazy Horse and Deadwood, SD first and then headed to Yellowstone. We stopped at Devil's Tower along the way.

The KOA near Devil's Tower screens Close Encounters of the Third Kind nightly during the summer season.

Be aware that the Mt. Rushmore area is very busy with bikers during their Sturgis event which is right after EAA Oshkosh in late July early August. We go by there about that time after Oshkosh on our way home and stopped one year so our 11 year old grandson could visit Rushmore. The possibility of an accident while driving among all the bike traffic was very worrisome to me, but they didn't seem to mind.


Best of luck.


Steve

Very true! We got caught up in it during the summer of 1990. Good thing we made reservations at the Mt. Rushmore KOA.

Alot of Yellowstone burned in 1988. While you're driving the big Figure 8 Loops, notice the now 25+ year old "new growth" next to the centuries old growth. I remember going thru Yellowstone a decade after the fire, and seeing all the Christmas Trees. All are natural, none are planted, as I am told. It's amazing to me to see the power of a wild fire, and I spent 12 years fighting wildfires from the air.
