  Devil's Postpile
by PinkFloydActuary

The two most popular things to see in the Monument are Rainbow Falls and the Postpile. These actually were the only two requested stops out of 10 possible stops for our nearly full shuttle bus. Once you get off at the correct shuttle stop, you can collect a map and newspaper at the ranger station, and then set off for a very short hike to the Postpile. The trail is fairly flat, and under a half mile. If you're looking for something a little more strenuous, you can hike to the top of the Postpile. We decided to circle around the front instead and save our energy to hike to the Falls.

I think this is a fairly cool monument - it looks very similar to Devil's Tower in my mind. I found the hexagon shape of the columns to be ineat. In the end, it doesn't take long at all to wander around the monument itself - it was a much longer trip to get there on the bus.
