Twelve hikers and three dogs drove to Granite Gap. It was a cool morning with temperatures in the high 30’s but later warmed up tp the high 50’s. We more or less did the usual clockwise loop going through washes and among rocks.. The view of the snow-capped Chiricahuas to the south was spectacular. The early morning lighting of the granite outcrops made the landscape seem unreal. Lunch was enjoyed on our favorite rock. We then proceeded to walk further north until we joined a road . Here we turned west to go past Granite Peak where we observed a falcon -either Prairie or Peregrine against the granite wall. Then it was time to turn around and we completed the loop mainly following a road.

Total distance around 7 miles.

Next week Thursday 2/20we shall hike the Price Canyon. Meet at Rodeo Postoffice at 9AM

For people from Portal: carpool from Foothills and Portal Road corner at 8:45AM
