Wyoming 110 (Devils Tower)

Wyoming 110 - Westbound
A set of red cliffs rise above the Belle Fourche River, which eroded the cliffs to how they look today. While these cliffs are certainly beautiful to behold, they are overshadowed literally and figuratively by the massive Devils Tower behind them. Photo taken 09/04/04.
Westbound Wyoming 110 enters the town of Devils Tower. Devils Tower rises to the west, and the entrance station to the national monument comes into view beyond the town. Photo taken 09/04/04.
For more information on Devils Tower, visit the official site for more information on attractions, park entry fees, hiking trails, and related information. Photo taken 09/04/04.
Upon entering the national monument, the state highway ends, but the highway continues all the way to the visitor parking lot. Here the highway passes through a scenic meadow surrounded by treed hillsides. Photo taken 09/04/04.
Now at the parking area, trails emanate for those who wish to travel around the perimeter of Devils Tower. Photo taken 09/04/04.

Wyoming 110 - Westbound
Leaving the main parking area at Devils Tower National Park, the park service road winds down to the level of the Belle Fourche River and passes by several sets of red cliffs. Photo taken 09/04/04.
The highway passes over the Belle Fourche River just prior to passing out of the national monument and returning to Wyoming 24. Photo taken 09/04/04.
After passing through the entry gates of the national monument, Wyoming 110 officially begins, but there is no first shield for the short state highway. Almost immediately after exiting the monument area, Wyoming 110 passes through the town of Devils Tower. Photo taken 09/04/04.
Eastbound Wyoming 110 approaches its junction with Wyoming 24. Follow Wyoming 24 north to Hulett and south to U.S. 14 (to Sundance and Moorcroft). Photo taken 09/04/04.
Note that the sign for Wyoming 24 shows the southbound control city as Moorcroft. This is likely due to the fact that many visitors to Devils Tower are next on their way toward Yellowstone-Grand Teton National Parks, and they must pass through Moorcroft to meet Interstate 90 and continue on their journey west. Wyoming 110 ends here. Photo taken 09/04/04.
