For some it's a sacred place of worship. To others, it’s a geological wonder. No matter what it means to you, one visit tells you that Devils Tower National Monument is a beautiful sight to behold.
Jewel Cave National Monument
Jewel Cave National Monument is not only the second-longest cave in the world (currently 141.37 miles!), it is also one of its most structurally complex. Located just over an hour southwest of Rapid City, Jewel Cave is a regional gem tucked in the Black Hills.
