In the strange no-man’s-land quadrant off China Hat in southeast Bend, you’ll find an array of little buttes. You probably wouldn’t be able to distinguish one from another in a photo lineup, but that’s okay. Start to get to know these mounds with this long day hike from Bessie Butte to Kelsey Butte and back.
