Best Answer

A butte is a hill with steep sides and a small flat top, but in some regions of the U.S. the meaning has been broadened and is used for any hill. An example would be the Mitten Buttes of Monument valley in Arizona. They're in the background of a lot of old western films, so are easily recognizable as the stereotypical buttes.
