Remember that scene from the fine movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind? I sure did when I was planning my bike tour of the northern Great Plains a few years ago. A spectacle such as that is something I had to see for myself.
I arrived at the Devil’s Tower National Monument fairly early in the day so I got a great campsite right in front of that huge tower of rock. I absorbed the view all afternoon and evening. The next morning I rode my bike to the visitor center and from there I climbed the boulder field to the base of the tower itself. It was magnificent.
Despite all my observation and exploration of the monument, I saw absolutely no evidence that ANY alien activity had EVER occurred in the area. I’m just going to come right out and say it: I BELIEVE SPIELBERG FAKED THE WHOLE THING!
Thank you for sticking with me for yet another day. I’ll be back tomorrow.
