Photo: Prairie Landscape Big Muddy Badlands Dusk Southern Saskatchewan

This arid farmland is found in the Big Muddy Badlands located in Southern Saskatchewan and as the sun sets on another day the sky is turned to various shades of pinks, yellows and blues. This area also borders nothern Montana.

The Big Muddy Badlands are named as such because they can be found bordering the Big Muddy Creek in the Big Muddy Valley - set into the prairie landscape of Southern Saskatchewan. They are actually a group of badlands that are found together and are more like an area of erosion and sandstone.

Badlands are an area of arid soil where you will often find sedimentary rocks and soil that is rich in clay. They often contain crevices and gorges and are hard to walk around on foot. During sunset and dusk, the formations of the Big Muddy Badlands of southern Saskatchewan often glow in the golden light while the grasses are highlighted.

... The trail stretched all the way from Canada to Mexico and this area was just part of it.

Today this area isn't very populated and is used mostly for farming and tourism, such as ranches where people can ride horses. Due to the arid nature of the soil here farming it can still be a difficult task here.
