KUOW Hike of the Week- Ceder Butt - Cedar Butte?

Updated 1-29-2013

Cedar Butte is a great winter hike usually snowfree, maybe just patchy snow at top. Butt vs. Butte? The USGS maker at the summit has a type that says "Ceder Butt." I guess they did not have spellcheck program then.
Thanks Alan Bauer for some of the photos
