Day 37 (July 1, 2020): Devils Tower

Stayed at a KOA last night and woke up to a beautiful view of Devil’s Tower. I was also happy to have a flushing toilet and a place to shower. It’s the little things in life!

Biked into Devil’s Tower National Monument as the last information I heard (and heard from the ranger at the gate) that you can bike to the base of the tower. Apparently, things had changed that morning. No one was being allowed to bike or hike the road, because the parking lot was being paved. So, went back to the campground, packed up the bike and drove into the park.

There were quite a few people here at the park crammed into a relatively small space. There was little social distancing going on here, so mask wearing seemed like the thing to do.

Had a nice surprise of five military jets flying in formation by the Tower. Quite a site to be seen and heard!

Stopped at the Crow Peak Brewing in Spearfish, SD to sample the local brew. Had some pizza at Dough Trader Pizza.
