Book Tour Wierd

Two strange sights seen on the Seahawkeye Book Tour

Devils Tower 2

We had a Close Encounter at Devils Tower in the Black Hills of Wyoming. The tower is an igneous intrusion, a laccolith remnant, or volcanic plug, depending upon which scientist you believe. I don't know what any of that means. I'll go with the theory advanced by Steven Spielberg in Close Encounters of a Third Kind, since the tower clearly is an alien landing station.


The Jolly Green Giant in Blue Earth, Minnesota, is 55 feet tall. The story of why it was built, and why it was built in Blue Earth, is at this Roadside America link.
