Within fifteen minutes, it truly wasn’t a mirage: Devils Towerjutting up with growing clouds (and no cool Close Encounters music to explain the darkening and thickening clouds swirling around).
Although I have to admit – the motorcycle noise at this point was loud, but no longer as noticeable, because I was truly astounded with the impression of the Tower.
Or maybe because it was like Blythe, California and the intaglios: no preconceived notions, no build up – heck, we hadn’t planned on seeing either, and already the Tower was striking an imposing bid to be a highlight of the trip and we hadn’t even got there yet.
