So I took a working vacation for 3 days in the North Country.  Granite Basin on day one.  Trail 351 to 348 to 347 to 345 to 351.  A great loop.  I think I did this a few weeks ago on the Prescott Monster Cross.  Traveling for work that involves a car full of demo equipment, makes one forget a thing or two.  Camera included.   Day two involved Flagstaff and Rocky Ridge, Upper Oldham, Sunset and Schultz Creek loop.  Rocky Ridge was simply awesome.

Luckily, a local was on hand to unknowingly guide me to the Rocky Ridge trailhead from my hotel room.

Good tymes.
