This Spooky Urban Legend From Wyoming Will Keep You Awake At Night
Devil’s Tower is one of the most iconic visions of Wyoming’s frontier. The butte can be found in the Black Hills, more specifically the Bear Lodge Mountains, and is made from igneous rock. The formation is considered a National Monument and has held cultural and historical significance for centuries. Native American folklore tells fascinating and mysterious stories about the rock, some of which have truly haunting undertones. These cultures regard Devil’s Tower as a sacred space, and perhaps that is why its surrounding legends are especially eerie.
