The lookout sits on top of the highest point of land of Oregon Butte. Funny that they'd call this after the neighbor state rather than say Washington Butte or something.

Oregon Butte

Oregon Butte is named after ugly Washington's beautiful southern neighbor. It must be the most beautiful place in Washington.

Re: Oregon Butte

No, it's not spectacular area. The mountain used to be called Oregon Butt.

Re: Oregon Butte

Actually it was originally named "Oregun's Butt" to show our appreciation and honor to our neighbors to the south. We've saved our most spectacular mountains for the areas to the north. Dennis has seen the north cascades and he knows that we have the real mountains and Oregon has the pretend ones.

Re: Oregon Butte

Oregon named Mount Washington, a rotten piece of rock in Oregon to honor their neighbors to the north.

Re: Oregon Butte

And a killer of rotten rock at that. Oregon Butt is so tame it'll only cause ya to get sleepy.

Re: Oregon Butte

I must say that I did find the deep canyons cutting off high plateau slopes at the east end of the WA Blues to be quite fantastic. I drove down that way after doing Asotin & Garfield Countys' highpoints. I drove east on FR-43 to Asotin Creek thence to the town of Asotin. Probably better to go down that way than up because you get to look out from the mountainside as you're doing so. To see those little farms tucked away in the narrow canyon was kind of neat.

Re: Oregon Butte

Very true words and nice to hear them for this pretty much unknown area. I know Dennis is going to get pretty excited to get to this area and pick up three more sweet county highpoints.

Re: Oregon Butte

I'm just tingling with anticipation of climbing anything with the name Oregon attached.
