Legends live on the Black Hills of the Wyoming side. Native Americans once gathered in the shadow of a most impressive mountain and danced. The dance has in fact left its mark on both the mountain and the name of the town now occupying the area. Sundance boasts of outlaw tales, such as the escape of the “Sundance Kid” from the local jail. Not too far away from Sundance, Devils Tower snuggles up against the western edge of the Black Hills in Wyoming. This ancient geological wonder is reported by Native American legend to have been created when a monolithic bear attacked seven girls. To protect these girls the ground rose under them while the bear clawed at the sides attempting to reach them; the credibility of this tale increases with your visit. Campgrounds included in this eTrail are: Sand Creek, Sundance Trails, Reuter, Cook Lake, Bearlodge, and Devils Tower National Monument.
