A detour

The Devil’s Tower, Wyoming. Wikipedia photograph

I had carefully mapped out a schedule that would take us from Holland Landing to the Badlands of South Dakota, Rocky Mountain National Park, Mount Massive Wilderness Area, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Great Sand Dunes National Park and Denver and back again in just two weeks.
Then, during a casual discussion of our trip with friends, David revealed his plans for a side trip to Wyoming.
Huh?
Seems he cannot fathom being that close to the Devil’s Tower without seeing it up close. The Devil’s Tower, you may recall, was where the aliens landed in the 1977 movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
At first, I balked.
But a little Google-mapping later, I discovered it would only take us a few hours out of our way and added it to the itinerary.
