I was ecstatic when I learned that we were going to meet the Dumas at Devils Tower! You can see their post at http://turtletells.com/2015/07/27/devils-tower-2/ We arrived at Devils Tower on Sunday afternoon, after what seemed like a never ending ride. They had not arrived yet, so I tried to be patient. Them a couple hours later Lillian ran and jumped on me. We hugged and talked a mile a minute, about what books we were reading, Harry Potter, and Sewing. That night we had a sleeep over. Lillian and I stayed up late talking and playing games. In the moring we played Toss the Manatee, a game we made up. Then we took a hike up to the base of Devils Tower. Then we walked around Devils Tower. Before we walked down we went and got our Jounior Ranger Programs and heard the heard the Indian legend about the tower.
We learned the geology behind the tower’s formation, too. It is made of hardened molten magma. The sedimentary rock around the magma has been eroded. Once we were down Lillian and I went and searched for a way down to a stream we had found. We had no luck in finding one so we went back and played Clue with the boys. Then Miss B came over with good news. They had found a way down to the stream. We got our tubes and walked down. We floated down the creek several times.
Then it was time for dinner. We had hamburgers and watermelon. We went to a presentation about all the people who have climbed the tower. Someday Lillian and I would like to climb it. We played outside for a bit and them played more clue. We all slept at the Dumas camper. The next moring we watched some Flipper and then went down to the stream. We stayed there most of the day. Then we all slept at our house. The boys and the dads went to see Close Encounters which was filmed here. Then we had to say goodbye. I was sad we had to leave, but I am glad we got to see them.
