Originally planned to spend a few days camping around the wife's ancestral home; broadening the search for a place to drop the rig, found a neat looking spot just north of the border so off we went. The park encompasses/preserves land sacred to First Nations people; it would be a privilege to be able to spend some time there.

You may have seen him in Scott of the Sahara

First glimpse of the Sweetgrass Hills

Closing on West Butte (the north face will re-appear many times throughout the trip)

Badger was a bit too quick for a good shot

Never did see any; bummer

Dropping off the prairie into the river valley and the hoodoos

Hot and dry for the next few days (we thought); kept the mosquitos down to a manageable level
