This is a web-site I saw on YouTube promoting Wyoming. Not bad.

I've been to Devil's Tower several times. It has a powerful aura. I don't have any way to describe it, but I am not at all surprised that the Indian people found it a sacred place.  Do wish it had a better name.

Don't the Indians call it "Bear Lodge", because of the Big Dipper (Ursa Major)?
To the degree you demand any individual or institution to be your savior, to that equal degree will that individual or institution demand to be your lord!

I don't know. There was a movement a year or so ago to rename the tower, using an old indian name, but I can't remember what became of that effort.
