    We sat for hours as I created a watercolor painting of this amazing geological formation. I was fascinated watching climbers slowly scaling the Rock, tiny insect beings suspended on their ropes.

    You have not really seen America until you've seen this place. I am in awe.

    Impressive formation, worth the travel from the Rapid City area to visit it. What was even more impressive that the tower was the roughly 6.5 miles trail that goes completely around the base of the tower. It transitions from grasslands, to ponderosa pine forests, to red rock formations, to a great prarie dog town. Saw deer and antelope on the hike. It is an easy hike with amazing views. Well worth the time and effort.
