Devils Tower was proclaimed the first U.S. National Park by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906. The tower is today a popular climbing site and over 20,000 ascents have been made. Jutting magnificently out of the relatively flat surrounding terrain, the tower was a greatly honored vision quest site of the Indians. Its use in this regard has continued to the present time, for both Indians and non-Indians, and many visitors have reported seeing strange light phenomena and UFO's flying about the tower's summit.
In 1977, Steven Spielberg release the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, made Devil's Tower a popular site to visit in the United States. Devils Tower served as the landing zone / meet and greet for the aliens in the movie.
Any close encounters while here?
