Devil's Tower

We were just here overnight May 22nd - 23rd. Not enough hiking was involved this time. A return is in order.

The Peace Sculpture below the tower.

Ribbons left by Native Americans along the trail.

An evening walk along the Belle Fourche river.

John Deere Harvester Works in Moline, IL

Tour arranged by our good friend Lani, 05/18/16.

There is equipment in the lobby that you can play on while waiting for your tour. 

No pictures were allowed on the tour so you'll have to believe me that it was fascinating. I especially enjoyed the painting robots.
