Granite Mountain as viewed from the trailhead
Now from about halfway in, featuring some interesting rock formations down low
Getting closer, a big saguaro
Now closer to the top, the summit is to the right, but still hidden
The actual summit and highpoint rock viewed from the western bump
View north from the true summit
View of the western (lower) summit from the true summit. The rock in front is the top of the summit block. In back is Brown's Ranch Mountain, and to the far left is Pinnacle Peak, I think.
View down as I descend. The low hump immediately behind is Fraesfield Mountain. The McDowell Range is seen in back
