Indian lore says that the long marks on the tower are from bears. The story is that 7 Indian girls were playing outside their village and were chased by bears. They ran and stood on a rock about 3 feet tall. One girl prayed to the rock, "Rock save us-Rock take pity on us." The rock started to elongate itself upwards and when the bears jumped, they scratched the rock, broke their claws and fell back to the ground. The 7 Indian girls are still up there in the sky, seven little stars in the group known as Pleiades.
We stopped to eat lunch at Cindy B's restaurant in Aladdin, Wyoming. (population 15) We headed back to Sundance for groceries, diesel, and a swim in the pool. We head back to South Dakota tomorrow for a weeks stay at Custer State Park.
