Devils Tower

20120717-124204.jpg

The light wasn’t great for taking photos this morning, but here’s Devils Tower. At first I thought that it was spelled “Devil’s Tower”, and that the place name suggested the tower was owned by a single devil. But when I noticed that all the signs pointed to “Devils Tower”, I thought instead that it was named in honor of multiple devils.

Further research (i.e., taking 15 seconds to check Wikipedia) reveals that “all information signs in that area use the name ‘Devils Tower’, following a geographic naming standard whereby the apostrophe is eliminated.”

  1. Hey there

    I’m the recipient of the Devil’s Tower postcard and it is made of complete awesome. It’s one of my favorite movies. I just wanted to let you know I got it on the same day I lost my job and I hold you responsible for making my day much, much better.

    Get well soon, look forward to reading more of your adventures!

  2. Arlene, thank you so much for the thoughtful comment; it makes me happy hear that I was able to elevate your spirits.
