Granite Mountain

Granite Mountain as seen from where the road emerges from the narrows and into the open

About a mile closer

West Granite Mountain and Bartlett Lake in back.

The summit, with about 400 vertical feet of nasty brush to get through

On the pillar with the benchmark

Using a branch to get my germs on the highest point

View northeast at Mount Ord, Crabtree Butte and Boulder Mountain

Four Peaks

Rock formations below, Boulder Mountain in back with some of the road we walked down below

Suddenly, we're back on the road. Four Peaks again

Looking back up at the mountain mass

Images of the road within the narrows. The trickle emanates from Log Corral Spring and runs about 500 feet.

Some show-stopper rocks in the road. You better have serious off-road vehicles, like these people did

Cottonwoods in Sycamore Creek as we exit
