Yesterday we hiked into Granite Mountain Lookout, which my Garmin says is 6.16 miles with 1680' of elevation gain.
I was concerned that our older dog, 10 yo Sasha, would have problems with the distance/elevation but as it turns out she did just fine. It was I who had the problem! I hadn't remembered it being that hard and thought I would find it much easier after my bike riding of late. It wasn't. Suffice to say, after 5 salt tabs, I did make it.
I've posted all the pictures on Facebook, Granite Mtn Lookout Hike, but here are a couple of good ones.
