Photo: Castle Butte Big Muddy Badlands Saskatchewan Canada

A fascinating geological feature of the Big Muddy Badlands in Saskatchewan, Canada, Castle Butte rises from the flat valley floor to a height of 70 metres.

A landmark formation which has long been used as a navigational tool by Indians, early settlers, the Mounted Police, as well as outlaws, Castle Butte has a very distinctive shape which stands out from the surrounding landscape of the Big Muddy Badlands.

Castle Butte is a weathered formation primarily made up of sandstone and clay, eroded and shaped over time by the forces of nature. At its foot, prairie grasses and sage carpet the valley floor and sway in the warm breeze, these add contrast against the red sunset shades of Castle Butte.

Castle Butte sits out in an expansive river valley in the Big Muddy Badlands and can be accessed from along Highway 34. Keep an "eye out" for the faded sign which turns you off the main paved road onto a gravel road.
