map showing location of Pompeys Pillar

Pompeys Pillar National Monument is a massive sandstone outcrop that rises from an almost 2-acre base on the banks of the Yellowstone River 150 feet toward Montana's Big Sky, east of Billings. The monument's premier location at a natural ford in the Yellowstone River, and its geologic distinction as the only major sandstone formation in the area, have made Pompeys Pilar a celebrated landmark and outstanding observation point. There was a fee of $7 per vehicle.

After enjoying the inside of the Information Center, the two RV Gypsies headed outdoors to explore the park.

A boulder too big to photograph the whole length is a replica of the real rock shown on the next page of this website. The re-created signatures and drawings here are more legible than they are on the real rock.

The two RV Gypsies relaxed on a bench by the Yellowstone River, watched a few birds above them in the trees, listened to the peaceful flow of the Yellowstone River, and simply enjoyed nature at its finest.
