This 500 foot tall butte is right along Route 97, just south of Bend. I have passed it several times this week as I traveled down to Crater Lake. It is part of the Newberry Volcanic National Monument. Traffic was light the morning I took this so I was able to cross two lanes of the highway without becoming roadkill.
I found the picture below online which shows the butte from the air. I think is an absolutely breathtaking photograph.

I have another butte picture (I can hear y’all out there snickering) which I will post tomorrow.
