A prominent landmark along the Columbia, Horsethief Butte has played host to native americans, Lewis and Clark, countless budding climbers, and scads of inquisitive hikers, but probably no horse thieves. Created by ancient lava flows and carved by floods of biblical proportions, the butte is an excellent place to contemplate the region’s fascinating natural history.
