Quaquaversal
--------
"Sloping downward from a center in all directions."

I remember learning that word in high school. Since this quaquaversal butte was just a ways out of town, it was easy for our science teacher to give us an example. Too bad our language teacher taught German instead of French, or we would have known why the early explorers named it "Teton Butte"....
