From the U.S. Department of the Interior:
Sacred to more than a dozen Native American tribes, Devils Tower National in Wyoming was originally called “Bear’s Lodge” or “Bear’s Tipi.” Its otherworldly appearance played a role in origin stories and the legends of heroes. Rising 600 feet above the surrounding plains, it is an impressive and moving sight.
