So since we were within 2 hours..
we decided to take the drive up.
So we borrowed my parents car..
took off through the rain & fog..
and came closer..
This monolith is amazing.
Despite the connection to the movie..
it's a very sacred place for the Native Americans.
There were a lot of 'prayer' cloths on the trees..
We hiked the whole loop trail and
got different sides to the tower.
We finally found our way around
to the other side and back to
the beginning. We found a kind soul to
take our picture:
Certainly shows the perspective!
On the way back to Custer, we found
a great little grill in Hullet, WY.
Sat next to people from Long Island, NY..
We made our way back..through the
prairies. The colors are starting to change
just a bit..
Nice end to a nice day!
