After my hike to the Black Top Mesa I wanted to see what the Siphon Draw to Flatiron was all about and I was not disappointed my friends! What an amazing hike! :)

Started out on the Siphon Draw trail at 7:00am and took my sweet time taking lots of pictures of the area. This was my first time here and I was awestruck with the views on the way to the top. Got off trail a few times but a kind sir I met on the way pointed me in the right direction (thanks Corey wherever you are!). I really enjoyed the climbs along the way and I took a lot of breaks just to look around and enjoy the silence. As the looming Flatiron became closer and closer I became more and more excited! I was hoping for epic views and this hike did not let me down in that regard, awesomeness abounds at the top. I ran up the trail to the Flatiron and met a couple of people that were camping from the night before. After chatting for awhile I excused myself to go to the edge of the Flatiron. There I stood,exhilarated, but to my dismay I looked down to see a giant turd and wads of toilet paper :( . Determined not to let this ruin my moment of triumph, I moved farther along and resumed enjoying the sights.

On my way down I met a British man (Pete) who was climbing up to peak 5024 and he kindly let me come along and showed me the way up. Once there I was confronted with more amazing views and I knew then that I would hike the Ridge Line Trail someday ( a week and a half later it turns out)! Had fun hopping down the trail on the way back and my legs were shaking a little when I got back to the car but I was smiling from ear to ear! What a hike! Thanks Superstitions, you are awesome. :y:
