Recently a good friend purchased some land that provided access to one of these amazing and rarely visited valleys. Doing some online scouting I could not find any images from this place, and it appeared that their was a large hanging valley at the end of the 9 mile long canyon. So I packed a bag for a few days of backpacking and set out to see what I could find. Never have I hiked through such a diverse and beautiful valley. Junipers, Aspen, creeks, waterfalls, wildflowers, all along this hike. Better yet not a single person or sign of man. Reaching the end of the canyon and the hanging meadow, I was rewarded with maybe the most awe inspiring view I have every scene. I camped for 2 nights in this place and photographed to my hearts content. All the while this massive granite peak towered over me.
1. Private land at the foot of the drainage.
2. ~9 mile long drainage.
3. Hanging meadow at the head of the drainage.
4. Granite peak.
5. Rarely visited?
All that being said, I wouldn't put a ton of stock in the description, because, that doesn't look very granitic to me.
