Devils Tower, An Evocative Setting For Many Types Of Experiences And Forms Of Expression. An astounding geologic feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie surrounding the Black Hills. This site is considered Sacred to the Lakota and many other tribes that have a connection to the area. Hundreds of parallel cracks make it one of the finest traditional crack climbing areas in North America.
You might be surprised to learn that there is a sighting in or around your home town! For those who study unidentified sightings or just have an interest in separating science fact from science fiction, MUFON’s reference databases will enable you to catch up with the latest developments regarding a case you may have read about or even seen on a cable TV program.
Joe Alves, Production Designer and Location Scout for 1977’s ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’, takes us back to the days when he first felt the magic of Devils Tower.
