Devils Tower

Devils Tower Trip Report (#1669)

After living at the base of this unique and wonderful piece of God for nearly 16 years, I finally found my way up it's ancient side and to the top! The climb with Frank, Gene, and Dana was my first true experience with the rock. Although it has been standing outside my window for every day of my life I had never felt the rawness or purity of it. Climbing is a new venture; a rush beyond all others. When you reach the summit it is as if all your worries and fears have been left at the bottom. Your dreams and in essence your soul are free of the confines of society. It is a religion all its own. Thank you Crazy Frank and Aunt Mary (Gene too) for giving me the gift that goes beyond scraped knees and aching muscles! Love always, Andrea
