Ever since I saw the film Close Encounters Of The Third Kind (in the theater) I've always been fascinated by The Devil's Tower. Rising above the surrounding landscape 1,267 feet this unmistakable monolith can be seen for miles away, it is believed that the tower was formed eons ago by liquid rock that had intruded into the existing sedimentary rock beds without reaching the surface. After millions of years the surrounding surface weathered away leaving the tower behind. It is said that over time it will completely erode away.

In a way I'm kicking myself for not staying at Wyoming's Devil's Tower and capturing sunset, but on the other hand as we were approaching I-90 a different type of sunset opened up before us as gorgeous rays of light shown from behind us. The sky filled with pastel colors while the moon rose in the distance. What was really interesting was how the rays of light converged into a vanishing point in front of us, one would think the rays would do the opposite since the sun was setting behind us. Within an hour of this shot I would be sitting down awaiting the arrival of what is the absolute most delicious steak I've ever eaten in my life. A perfect end to a most perfect day.
