Still Hiking As the Sun Sets At Square Butte, North Dakota Badlands
Our adventure had taken longer than expected. The boulders were much bigger and the terrain much rougher than we had anticipated. And the sun sets early in the North Dakota Badlands in winter. We continued to hike the top of Square Butte, wanting take in the astounding winter vistas, and not wanting to make another -30 degree (and plummeting) day.
