Started at road south of Saddle Pass. Went north through pass and east on Castle Trail, looping back on Medicine Root Trail. A beautiful introduction to the Badlands on my first time in area.
Left Janesville, Wisconsin Tuesday at 2 pm and slept in a motel in the middle of Minnesota. On Wednesday left at 7 a.m. (6 a.m.) South Dakota time and reached Fossil Exhibit Trailhead where I started my hike at 12:15 p.m. doing a one way hike. Sunny and in 60s degrees F. Very windy but nice.
