Over the next couple of days we wandered around the Black Hills, got in some good twisty riding, and saw the sights.
Devil’s Tower is so huge, and so isolated out there, it’s very difficult to get a feel for how big it is, even when standing right at its foot. It really is a huge natural phenomenon. Here’s a picture I created to try to show the scale a little bit.
Devil’s Tower is 1.267 feet tall from its base. The Washington Monument is 555 feet tall. The eiffel Tower is 1,063 feet tall and the Empire State Building is 1,250 feet to its roof, 1,454 feet to the top of the radio tower.
Only the world’s very largest man-made structures are taller than Devil’s Tower.
It’s really an amazing piece of God’s handiwork.
