Canyonlands National Park

There's a difference between buttes and mesas. Buttes are taller than they are wide. Mesas are wider than they are tall. In general. Mesa means table, so think of how tables look. Buttes are like barstools ... as in ... "get your butte up on that barstool!"

... Just in case you were looking for a way to remember the difference ...

Reminds me of the method of remembering which are stalactites and stalagmites... think of a ballerina dancing on an ant heap - when the mites come up, the tites come down :o)

Love the photograph. I mite use it as the basis for a Vue landscape (if you don't mind).

This looks mysterious, or perhaps like a mirage. Of course I know the difference between buttes and mesas. I live in California where Spanish is required.

Well, thanks to you Tara, I have a way to remember the difference, now! LOL!

So now I need to get my butte off the mesa, and get to work on the next page... LOL!

For such a bright and sunny place this photo looks like the end of the world is coming to someone familiar with the area! I know it is still early morning by the shadows being cast. I see the La Sal Mountains are a little hazy but generally a clear day. What really makes this stand out is the contrast of the foreground with the background and the highlight patches that meander through the middle to those buttes of yours lol!
