I went in to Gillette and bought some heavy duty tape and tried to repair the topper as best I could in driving winds and snow. We almost bailed. We really did. We thought hard about packing up and driving west until the winds slowed down. But in the end, we didn't because we have already come so far. Oh yeah, and it didn't look like we could drive out much faster than it was supposed to pass anyway.
So, we drove out to Devils Tower. In a snow storm.
|Visibility was an issue.|
Eventually we saw it coalesce from the misty surrounding.
The view from the visitor's center was pretty cool.
|Suddenly I wanted mashed potatoes|
|This means something. This is important!|
|Spring had sprung, but no one bothered to tell the snow.|
Sarah was trying to get some pictures too.
It was a beautiful surprise for us, all the snow. What with the cold and wind though, we were about ready to be done. One last picture for the record books.
Now next time we visit.
