My first project is at Devils Tower National Monument in the Black Hills in northeast Wyoming, finishing up a plant inventory started last year. The Tower is the most amazing rock I’ve ever seen, even after ca 50 years of looking! El Capitán in Yosemite Valley comes close, but it’s part of a landscape of similar features. Not so Devils Tower. It stands alone -- a beautiful and puzzling igneous intrusion in an otherwise sedimentary setting, the valley of the Belle Fourche River.
