Ancient Lore

WHEN? Tuesday · June 12

WHERE? Devils Tower Administration Building

Long-extinct Native American tribes claim that the magnified details on this mysterious moth's upper wings reveal a reflection of the Great Spirit of Devils Tower. These images are visible only to those who possess a pure heart, distinctive character, and broad imaginative capacity. Since these rare moths are attracted to the park office's recycled-rubber mats, Mae Dean was fortunate enough to get a detailed photo of this Devils Tower phenomenon.
