History of Devils Tower
Devils Tower National Monument (Lakota: Mato Tipila, meaning “Bear’s Lodging”) is a monolithic igneous intrusion or volcanic neck located in the Black Hills near Hulett and Sundance in Crook County, northeastern Wyoming, above the Belle Fourche River. It rises dramatically 386 m above the surrounding terrain and its summit is 1,558 m above sea level. It is formed by phonolitic columns.
Created as sea levels and climates changed repeatedly, grayish shales (deposited in oxygen-poor environments such as mudflats) were interspersed with fine-grained sandstones, limestones, and sometimes thin beds of red clay.
The already crystallized igneous rock mass did not become apparent in the landscape until the sedimentary rocks overlying and surrounding it were eroded away. As the elements eroded the softer sandstones and shales, the more resistant igneous rock resisted erosional forces to a greater extent. As a result, the gray columns of Devil’s Tower began to appear as an isolated mass standing out in the landscape. The Devil’s Tower is a very large, but not very large, rock.

How the devil’s tower was formed
My car was moving through the night, in the silence, the moon was guiding me along the lonely straight. Then I heard that Dantesque cackle that filled everything, I felt my skin bristle, my eyes widen…
I stopped the car and got out, the wasteland before my eyes, distant trees. Then, from far away, figures and more figures began to emerge, surrounding me quickly to try to catch me, I managed to get into the car to see that those figures that crowded the windows were myself. I ran over my twin ghosts with difficulty and managed to get out of there, all my fears kept laughing until I regained silence.
This was a marginal area with all the evils that our society brings us. I had a mixture of fear and hangover because I had heard since I was a kid thousands of stories about heroin, whores and problems.
I started to walk faster to get out of there as soon as possible and a few meters away from me I heard a big laugh followed by a voice coming closer but I could not understand what it said. I was no longer walking, I was running along the street but that voice was getting closer and closer and I didn’t dare to look back.
