Castle Butte, in the Big Muddy Badlands of Southern Saskatchewan, Canada is situated about 200 kilometers south of Regina, the capital city of the province of Saskatchewan, and also close to the Montana border.

There are many birds and animals in the valley of the Badlands, antelope, white-tailed and mule deer and the smaller denizens of the wild - skunks, porcupines, weasels and fox. Birds include falcons, golden eagles, vultures and even the burrowing owl.

The mythical landforms of the Badlands, including Castle Butte, were the creations left from the last Ice Age, over 10,000 years ago. Castle Butte stands like a sentinel in the Big Muddy, and was a landmark for the Plains Indians. It was also a place of refuge for the natives still alive after the Battle of Little Big Horn, including Chief Sitting Bull, and a popular meeting spot for outlaws such as Sam Kelley and Butch Cassidy. At dusk, though, Castle Butte looks like a fantasy land of mythical wizards and dragons.
