When traveling, there are a number of ways you can make an impact on the environment.



On September 24, 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt made Devils Tower the first National Monument in the USA. While this imposing natural landmark isn’t as popular as Mount Rushmore or Yellowstone, it still makes for a fascinating day trip or side trip on your vacation. This imposing spire is the product of an intrusion of igneous rock, and it’s still shaped today by wind and water erosion. Its hexagonal textured structure has made it famous among rock climbers, who flock to the park to test their climbing skills. It’s also one of the few places in the world where prairie dogs can be seen in their native habitat. Often found in small groups, these animals are also protected here at Devils Tower National Monument.
