I changed location and time so that we can have a butte to ourselves, please still come along!
Yep! Fall is around the corner and I thought it would be a good to get up high (some what) and watch the last sunset of summer from Bessie Butte. We'll meet at the new Starbucks location across the street from Fred Meyer, the old location for the Kona Plate at 5:30 pm and carpool to the butte.
Bessie Butte is about 5 miles down China Hat Road. We would pretty much have the butte to ourselves. It's just as easy of a walk as Lava Butte and has a great view of the sunset.
Please, if you can, bring a snack to share for a summer sunset buffet on the summit.
Bring a flashlight or headlamp!
