Narrator, It rises from the earth like a giant fist, stretching out to strike the sky. A colossal 900-foot shaft of rugged rock one, whose very name conjures notions above all and dread. Devil’S Tower.
Devil’s Tower is remarkable because you can drive across these sedimentary plains, see nothing but the flat ground for miles and miles, and then this tall dark tower emerges as you drive towards it…
There is nothing like it in the surrounding area…
The rock has a grayish.
Even a greenish-gray color., And so as you approach Devil’s Tower, it’s a distinct stark contrast to the sort of tans and browns of the surrounding sedimentary rocks. NARRATOR, Located in Northeastern Wyoming Devil’s Tower was declared America’s very first national monument in 1906 by President Theodore Roosevelt, who sought to protect it as an object of scientific interest… Since then many have asked what could have caused this massive tower to form.
There are many theories about it., But there’s no agreement on what it was that produced this miracle of nature… It is made of volcanic-type materials, but there is no other volcanic activity around it… So what caused this thing? We don’t know the answer to that question… It’s a really interesting conundrum.
NARRATOR Is Devil’s Tower, really a miracle of nature, Something that simply cannot be explained by natural and scientific laws.
Sorry, but that explanation is simply not good enough. As much as we like to walk around with the confidence that we know this planet and we understand the planet we live on. There seems to be nothing but mystery on this planet… We don’t understand how to predict earthquakes., We don’t understand how lightning travels.
There are so many questions that we have about what produces the forces of nature.? What do we really know about this planet? We live on Just when we think we have mother nature figured out.
Something reminds us that we’re not as smart as we think we are…
After all, have we found a way to put out the Centralia Fire Or how Devil’s Tower was formed? What, if not knowing all the answers, is why we were put here in the first place, Perhaps we’re made to keep searching to keep learning and to keep trying to figure out the answers to the unexplained.
