Granite Mountain Hike

At the beginning of May, Matt and I hiked up the trusty trail to the top of Granite Mountain. I've done this hike before, but the trail's diversity, challenge and nearby location make it worth repeating. Though we had a poor winter in terms of snowfall, the snow level here wasn't too bad - similar to the conditions I saw last June. Matt and I got in some good pictures near the summit so I've devoted a third page to the mountain.
