Granite Mountain Wilderness (SuDoc A 13.28:G 76/5)
A rugged mosaic of chaparral, oak, and pine woodland and granite boulders, the 9,700-acre Granite Mountains Wilderness shelters a relatively unchanged remnant of Arizona's natural heritage. The mountain's home to ravens and red-tailed hawks, blacktail rattlesnakes, and collared lizards, jackrabbits and woodrats, mule deer, mountain lions and a community of hundreds of other rare and common plants and animals. As a wilderness, the mountain is theirs, and we're their guests when we visit here.
