So why did not the photographer zoom in on the actual butte named for Butchart instead of Mt Hayden?

Good question...as I said in the article, I was taking a picture of Mt Hayden. I only learned after the fact that Butchart Butte was even in the picture. If I would have known about the Butte when I was there I am sure I would have zoomed in on it for another pic. Happy Trails, Mark
