August 26, 2007 – Wyoming and Devil’s Tower

Note: This “lost” Haw Creek Out ‘n About post was recovered from the Internet Archive WayBack Machine.

Our drive today was a relatively short one. We went from the Rushmore Shadows campground–about 9 miles south of Rapid City, South Dakota–to the KOA that sits just outside of the fence of Devil’s Tower National Monument in Wyoming.

The camper in this image is ours, after we had set up and extended the slides. Excellent location.

This is the view from the campsite next to ours. We have a small tree across the drive that is slightly in the way of our view.

We see deer every time we go for a walk or go for a drive.

This is from the opposite side of the tower, from the parking lot at the head of one of the park’s trails.

Long before the official time for sundown, we were in the shadow of the tower.

The Devil’s Tower KOA is a very large campground with plenty of room for tenters and RVers. This is the “overflow area.”
