Signaling the end of another warm summer day ... the sunset lights the sky sending a sublime hue over the landscape of the Big Muddy Badlands and formations of Castle Butte in Southern Saskatchewan.

An obscure location relatively undiscovered by tourists and therefore a peaceful haven for photography, Castle Butte was actually a well known landmark in the early days for the Northwest Mounted Police, Indians, and early Settlers. The Big Muddy area also provided a refuge for Outlaws and those on the run from the authorities.

The landscape of the Big Muddy Badlands which surrounds Castle Butte, was etched out by the melt waters of ancient glaciers and Castle Butte is a relic left over from that time. The floodplain of the valley is a whooping 3 kilometres wide and once carried a vast quantity of water in a southeast direction near the end of the last ice age.

Castle Butte which stands at 61 metres high is mostly composed of sandstone, clay, alkali and coal deposits and is constantly being molded by water which accounts for the fascinating formations and channels.
