The Worlds Smallest Mountain Range.
Thats right I said THE WORLD's smallest mountain range. ...
Don't think I am kidding about this. If you go to google and type in The worlds smallest mountain range you will find it clearly states "The Sutter Buttes".
There is a bit of info on Wikipedia you can view here.
I find it fascinating that it is the worlds smallest complete range, nowhere else in the world can that be claimed.
much of the area is owned privately as farms, a small portion is owned by the county and is available for tours (at a rather hefty price of 35.00+ per person no matter the age) for more information on that you can contact The Middle Mountain Foundation.
Now onto some images I have taken over the past years of these Buttes.

I hope that you enjoyed the view of the Sutter Buttes. They are a rare treat to behold. If you are so inclined once a year the area does a "bike around the Buttes" Learn more about it here. Thanks for taking a look with me at one of the rare beauties in my world.
