Geologic Review

The landscape of Devils Tower National Monument is the result of a unique interaction of sedimentary, igneous and erosional processes.

The deposition of a thick layer of sedimentary rocks set the stage for subsequent events.

Igneous activity created the Tower itself

And, finally, erosional processes exposed it to the world.
