An early afternoon hike before Hawaii trip in the heat of a hot day, but at least breezy in open areas thus no major bug problems and no crowds.

Granite is a splendid day out in the snow (when conditions allow) or in the summer. The fall colors are tremendous too. The wide open spaces higher up with views gives Granite a classic alpine feel. Have seen both bluebirds and crossbills higher up.

Had beautiful weather while ascending the chute. Above treeline, the wind was gusting fairly strongly, and it was damn cold at the summit. Good times!

Climbed up the Avalanche chute. There was a dusting of snow near the summit. Great views of Ranier. I came back off the mountain to find my truck broken into though.

This mountain is just great! My wife and I had been planning on heading up Granite Mountain when the huckleberries were at their peak and, while they weren't everywhere on our hike, we did find some decent patches. We passed a hiker on the way up who had said that he saw a bear eating berries on the upper slopes. By the time we got there, we could not see the bear. Oh well, more berries for me! The alpine meadows above the treeline are absolutely beautiful and give such an airy feel to the hike. The last half of a mile to the summit lookout is quite a great bit of scenery too. When we got to the lookout, there were two rangers who had been tracking the bear since earlier in the day. The views were beautiful all around and it was great to stop for some hard-earned lunch before heading back down. This was definitely a worthwhile outing!

Left at 1:30am and speed hiked to catch up to my buddies. We made it to the top by 4am and had a little bit of time before the sunrise, which was absolutely beautiful. Even hiked by just the moonlight for the meadow section. Saw two bears in different areas while coming down in the morning. A great way to climb this one, as we also realized we escaped the majority of the mosquitos and heat. There also was somebody sleeping in the tower at top... which we discovered at about 4am. Oops. Overall very amazing hike though.

This was my trail run, and qute a run it was. Spent quite a bit of time walking due to the elevation change, but still managed to make it to the top in about an hour. Overcast the whole way until the ridge, where there was nothing but blue skies! Will be back!

I really wish that they left the lookout unlocked. It would have been nice to eat lunch out of the wind.

Did this one while my wife was getting her nails done in North Bend. I had to run a good portion of it. Nice climb with plenty of snow on top. Good views.

Although the climb went well, the entire peak was whited out all day. No views from the top and most of the flowers had already passed their prime. Cold wet trip in July. What a bummer. But we still had a good time and were glad to be outside.
