Kick of the Week: Devils Tower

Devils Tower National Monument, WY – July 2009 (note resemblance to our logo)

Happy 96th Birthday to the National Park Service!

In honor of this occasion, here is an early hick-kick photo taken during our Great Western road trip in 2009. A sci-fi icon since Spielberg’s 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Devils Tower was actually declared our nation’s first National Monument in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt. It is now one of the 397 units overseen by the National Park Service, who safeguard these natural, cultural, and historical wonders for all to enjoy. Thanks again NPS!
