southern utah peaks day hike

I'm planning a trip to southern Utah to climb some high peaks. Mount Ellen, Mount Dutton, and Bluebell Knoll are on the agenda. My plan is to leave SLC on Saturday morning and drive down to Mount Ellen and either car camp at Lonesome Beaver Campground or stay at a motel in Green River. On Sunday, we'll climb Mount Ellen from Bull Creek Pass. This will be an easy hike of 2 miles roundtrip and 1,100' of gain. On Sunday afternoon, we'll drive over to Bluebell Knoll. Bluebell Knoll is essentially a drive up, but I may decide to walk a mile or so along the road. Sunday night, we'll car camp somewhere or stay at a motel in Bicknell. On Monday, we'll climb Mount Dutton. Mount Dutton is a drive up with a short hike up a road to the summit. Return to SLC on Monday night. We could also climb some additional peaks on the way back, such as South Tent or San Pitch, if people want to. We'll need some 4WD vehicles for the trip. I could also do a Friday-Sunday trip, or go the weekend of October 25. Please contact me by early October if you're interested in going.
