Journal Entry:
Devil's tower was pretty cool. The native American legend is seven sisters were playing with their brother when he turned into a bear and started to chase them. The climbed up on a tree stump and prayed. The stump rose to the heavens, and the sisters became the big dipper. The bear was so upset he scratched at the sides of the stump. That describes exactly what Devil's Tower looks like.

After leaving the tower I drove West on I90, found a cheap hotel (sever thunder storm warning and rain scared me from camping again).
