Devils Tower

It's hard to imagine what it would be like to be one of the first settlers or explorers, traveling through to find a new home or just to see what the West had to offer. Just think of it, first the awe of the Badlands then getting to see the dark trees and swelling terrain of the Black Hills, and then, when it seems God couldn't have painted a more beautiful landscape, red soil and rocky ridges with pine trees climbing each of them and the Belle Fourche river trickling not too far away all lead to the epicenter, Devils Tower. A rock so tall, yet wide and strong, immovable and timeless and something so unique that, one's mind has to spin just thinking of how we could be so blessed to be able to be part of such a divine landmark that can be seen from miles around. Just like the people from her area, Devil's Tower is deep rooted and couldn't ever be swayed by man made equipment, and we'd never want it to be. Every deep groove dug into her side represents the uniqueness created by time and weather that it's endured, each adding more character. The sharp, near-vertical cliffs with regular, furrows and flattened top serve as a striking welcoming sign to all who enter the area. And if I were a settler, I'd think this a great place to call home.

Just a note: I'll be emceeing an event at the tower this weekend and needed to find an introduction of some sort. This is what I came up with, I think it'll do :) .
