Looks a lot like granite to me. Do a Google Image search of "granite". Its appearance is often speckled and of variable color.

Granitic, but not true granite.  Based on the amount of quartz and feldspar, probably quartz monzonite.

It looks like what I've seen labeled as "White Granite" which is quite common in some places in the Western USA.
