On Friday, the 15th, several of us hiked a bit over 12 miles on the following trails: Wagner, Granite, Bluff, Pemberton, Rock Knob, Gooseneck, Delsie, Granite, Stoneman Wash, Bluff, Granite, and Wagner.
(We also hiked 12 miles on Friday, the 8th, but it was raining that day, so I don’t have any photos.)
This is a shot from the Granite Trail, prior to the hike:
