Red Butte from near the paved highway

And a little closer

The upper mountain

The top

Blurred shot of the lookout

The exposed red cliffs, "Shinarump"

As seen from the Grandview Lookout tower

The lookout (and my truck)

I finally found the benchmark (inset: a close-up)

You can see some of the cliffs in the Grand Canyon from the lookout

The ranger residence. Looks like toys from up here

Some info on the tower
