Road Trip: Day 2, Mt. Rushmore and Devils Tower

After flying through the Badlands we continued our journey west travelling to Mount Rushmore and then darting north to Devil’s Tower before a long drive across Wyoming to Casper where we stayed the night. The range of terrain we traversed gave of us everything from rolling pre-mountain hills to endless flatness. Devil’s Tower has always been one of my favorites and if you wonder why all I can say is go watch Close Encounters of the Third Kind again. It is also America’s first national monument.
