Fagin's Hike of the Week- Granite Mountain Lookout

Updated 10-20-2016
Granite Mt Lookout just west of Snoq Pass.  I was not up there recently as these photos were taken last year. However according to recent report from this Thursday  there is about 4 inches of snow just below the summit. Poles would be handy and perhaps some extra traction for your boots.
