Roadtrippers: The mysterious legend of Wyoming’s Devil’s Tower

From the bloggers at Roadtrippers:

When you come across a natural wonder as strange as Wyoming’s Devils Tower National Monument, you can’t help but wonder about it — and maybe let your imagination run a tiny bit wild.

Even scientists aren’t 100 percent certain how the massive stone structure came to exist. Theories range from it being a volcanic plug to being the neck of an extinct volcano. They do know that the tower was formed from an igneous material (cooled magma) which is the cause of the hexagonal columns. Erosion has definitely played a role in the creation of the tower we see today.

But enough of the science; the stories, myths and legends surrounding the tower are much more interesting, anyways.
