Little Butte, South Overlook, Emmett, Idaho, USA
Idaho

Little Butte is about 4 miles (6.4 km) north of Emmett, Idaho, USA.  This image was taken from the south rim of the butte.  Little Butte stands about 3,450 ft (1052 m) above sea-level and about 1000 ft (305 m) above the Payette River bottom in the valley below.

Little Butte is relatively long and skinny, only a few feet wide in some places and about 700 ft (213 m) at the widest location.  It's about 2,600 ft (792 m) long - running north-south. 

The town of Emmett, ID can be seen in the valley below (south).  To the east one can see Black Canyon Reservoir and it's dam.  The reservoir is ice-covered in this image.  To the north one can see the snow-capped Squaw Butte.  Image taken February 2, 2012.

More About Idaho

Idaho is a state located in the northwestern region of the United States of America.  Idaho is the 14th largest state by area, ranks 39th by population and 53rd by population density of the 50 United States.  Idaho was the 43rd state to be admitted into the Union, on July 3, 1890.  Idaho is landlocked, being bordered by Canada on the north and the states of Washington and Oregon on the west, Nevada and Utah on the south and Montana and Wyoming on the east.  Idaho is nicknamed "The Gem State" because nearly every known gemstone is found within the state.  Idaho is also famous for producing about one third of all potatoes grown in the USA.  Idaho also hosts the largest barrel cheese factory in the world, producing 120K metric tons of cheese per year.  There is some ambiguity as to where the name "Idaho" came from, but it is generally believed to have simply been made up by George M. Willing.  There is a possibility it was derived from a Native American phrase.  Idaho is very mountainous and is a popular outing destination of the outdoorsman.  The state population was about 1.58M in July 2011 with 84% being Caucasian, 11.2% Hispanic and 1.1% Native American.  The state capital and largest city is Boise.Source: wikipedia
