I did not know anything about Devil's Tower before watching Close Encounters about 2 years ago. Since then I'd always wanted to see this strange rock in the middle of nowhere. It did not disappoint. It sticks out like a sore thumb (sorry) against the fairly arid landscape. I think the fee to drive up to the base of it is something like 10-15 dollars, but definitely worth it. Chances are if you're this close you might as well pay the extra little bit and really get to see the monolith up-close. There are some mild hiking trails which take you the entire way around the monument, they are worth checking out if you have at least an hour here. It is also cool to watch for rock-climbers ascending Devil's Tower. If I return that would be something I'd love to look into.
