Castle Butte

Today we went to Castle Butte.  It is basically a large, really cool hill in the Big Muddy Valley.  It is about a 45 min drive from our house.  This is Castle Butte.
It cost us money for the gas to drive there but otherwise the trip was free.  We packed up some drinks and snacks and spent the afternoon hiking, climbing the hill, and exploring the caves.  Both girls made it to the top.  My oldest one is a little more cautious and was a bit scared on the way down.  My six year old loved it though.  She climbed it twice while we were there is already asking to go back.

Here they are climbing up to explore a little cave.

It was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.  Here is a picture of the whole family.

    We used to just go to the petroglyphs to climb and explore caves but as they don't let you climb there any more we have to venture a little further.
