awilsondcStandard Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2014

awilsondc

Cloudy day with no views. I really loved the last 1 1/2 miles of the trail. The beargrass was stunning! There was some snow along the trail but manageable, 2 1/2 hours up. We spent all off 5 minutes at the top due to zero views, but spent well over an hour in the boulder fields below having some tea and scrambling on the boulders. I really liked this one. Great for conditioning, but next time I'll take the boulders all the way up instead of the trail. Great fun! 6 hours car to car.

Another peak good for getting a workout/training. Nice bit of scrambling and boulder-hopping the last 3-400 ft up to the lookout tower.

Hiked this one last summer. Didn't care to hear the cars on I-90 most of the way. Apart from that I immensely enjoyed being out on the open granite slopes in the full sun. Lots of wildflowers delight in. Took pictures of pink spirea with Mt. Rainier as a backdrop. They turned out beautifully. Word of warning - keep hydrated & sunblocked. I kept pushing on instead of stopping for any breaks and got a little sick. Lesson learned.

Not enough snow to worry about avalanche danger on the summer route. Other tracks went up the talus ridge for the final push to the summit, but we foolishly decided to try the north side (where the summer trail goes after crossing the bowl), which had more than enough snow to be exhausting - took almost two hours for that section.

Another fine outing with the Boy Scouts. Saw a fawn trying to hide and play dead in a high meadow on the mountain. Also nice glissading near the top

I was more than tired of the recent temperature inversion so I decided it was time I summit the super popular Granite Mountain. I was the first to arrive at the parking lot and only saw one person behind me at about 4700'. Whoever it was turned around and I didnt see anyone until the summit. Views were absolutely stunning and temps climbed as high as 65 near the summit. Followed some tracks down the W. Ridge and then S. to the main trail. It was a lot more fun than descending the main route unless you have skis.

Good quick day hike in the afternoon. Three hours up and another two hours back down. A little bit hazy to see too far onto the horizon.

Great hike with a good amount of snow from about the 5000' level and up. Large cornices were still around near the lookout tower.

I've been up Granite many times in many seasons. Summer is too hot and crowded, winter requires snowshoes (ugh), spring has high avalanche danger, so my favorite time to climb is september. Less people and plenty of blueberries!
