This Granite Mountain is about 12 miles northeast of Perry Mesa, and only 3 miles northwest of Turret Pk and Rugged Mesa.

I used three dirt roads to get close to the base of Granite Mtn, and the last road was the challenging one. - Not much left of it.

It was a fairly straightforward hike up, and a bit of brush coming down. Catclaw was the nemesis vegetation for the day.

Starting out, the temp was 36 degrees, and when I finished, it was 50 degrees. - With a breeze.
Great temps for going up a mountain.

Surveyors took a helicopter ride, in 1966, to do their work up there.
A fire must have swept through the area, sometime after that, as most of the hardwoods on the mountain were dead and charred.
All other plant life were getting ready for their spring glory.

A fun little hike, with excellent views.
