P is for Pompey's Pillar National Monument

We had never heard of Pompey's Pillar National Monument, which sits alongside the Yellowstone River in Montana, until our visit to the area last year. Carved on the side are Native American petroglyphs and the signature of explorer William Clark. I walked to the 150-foot summit using the stairway you see in the photo. Although I saw some of the carvings, the lighting didn't lend itself to decent photos.

I'd have fun taking photos there. We visited Yellowstone when I was 8, but we didn't go there.

I don't remember that either when we were last in Yellowstone. Is it possible they've only recently discovered it?We used to camp and hike the west ALOT when we were younger. Had one of those books that you get stamped each time you enter a Natl. Park.

Loved the idea of encouraging the GPS, lol. Must see if I can turn hubby around on that.

This isn't in Yellowstone National Park, but near it. This place is along the Yellowstone River.
