Devils Tower, Wyoming, USA

Devils Tower is a monolith (more technically, an igneous intrusion) located near Hulett and Sundance in eastern Wyoming, above the Belle Fourche River. It rises dramatically 1267 feet (386 m) above the surrounding terrain. The summit is 5112 feet (1558 m) above sea level.

It is part of the first United States National Monument, established on September 24, 1906. 1347 acres (545 ha) are included within the Monument's boundaries.

In recent years about 1% of the Monument's 400,000 annual visitors climb Devils Tower. The monolith is featured prominently in the 1977 film Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
