Weathered: Sacred Places


Daily Post Challenge, Weathered

Bear Butte, located northeast of Sturgis, South Dakota, is an important religious site for many plains tribes including the Lakota Sioux and Cheyenne.

Geologically, it’s not a butte but a laccolith, an intrusive igneous body that uplifts the surrounding sedimentary rocks which have weathered away leaving this gorgeous structure.

It will be here long after the church in the foreground turns to dust.
