mineral mountains car camp - May 27, 2023

The Mineral Mountains are a rugged little range of beautiful white granite, just west of Beaver. They are well named: the area has lots of pretty rocks and minerals, and we'll visit the famous Wildhorse Canyon obsidian mine as well as Opal Mound, known for "bacon opal". We'll hike / bushwhack to the top of Granite Peak, and we'll check out the unique Granite Peak Reservoir, which is actually not particularly close to Granite Peak. Much of the hiking will be off-trail and exploratory.
