THE GRANITE CHIEF WILDERNESS......Whiskey Creek, Big Springs, Diamond Crossing, Mt. Mildred, Needle Peak; we knew them all. By foot, ski and horse over many years we worked, played and loved every foot of this wilderness, and the surrounding area. Now-days we peek in, usually from some high point nearby where we photograph this sacred ground. A thunder-storm this spring brought rain showers to Tinker's Knob. Mt. Anderson on the left is where the Benson Hut was buried so deep in snow, we had to dig to find the smoke-stack many years ago. The winter scene with maybe 30+ feet of snow makes the point.
