Devils Tower National Monument, USA

Devils Tower  is  located in the Black Hills, northeastern Wyoming in the United States.
It rises dramatically 386 m above the surrounding terrain and the summit is 1,558 m above sea level.

There are a few Theories of how the formation of this unique mountain of basalt occurred, most likely since the large masses of lava that cool slowly creates a polygonal joint pattern. Similar patterns can be found in Iceland, and in the hexagon pool in Israel.
