Oh Butte-i-full...
Well, a little research reveals that there are 609 named buttes in Montana, with 364 unique names (there are 29 Black Buttes. Oh, by the way, I think that one we showed yesterday was Crown Butte; this one I believe to be Lionhead Butte).

There are some great names here, from the violent - Choke-To-Death Butte, Deadman Butte, Fighting Butte; to the hungry - Biscuit Butte, Ice Cream Butte, Loaf of Bread Butte. I have assembled a list for your viewing pleasure, and if you need more information go to the excellent GNIS site.
