Even though it was a long drive east, 16 eager hikers showed up to hike Sutton Mountain.  After a 2 hour drive we arrived at the trailhead and hiked 3 1/2 miles up to the top. Wildflowers- Lupine, Paintbrush, Yarrow, Camas, Phlox and more were abundant. But the star of the show, and the reason we went to Sutton Mountain, were the Hedgehog Cactus blooming on the summit. After our hike down we went into the town of Mitchell where we enjoyed cold beers at Tiger Town Brew Pub. A nice finish to a perfect hike!
