Route: Siphon Peak 5024 trail to Flatiron (why not when your that close) back down to 4175 spur then took Palmer mine loop back.

My Jack Russell and I started on the Siphon Peak trail around 5:30am. About 2 miles In, I ran into two people coming down the mountain. One guy was lost on the mountain the day before, with out any supplies. The hiker found him the night before yelling for help. They camped somewhere near the Flatiron saddle. By the time I met up with them, they had used up all the hikers water. I gave them a liter of water and some food. I talked with the hiker a few minutes, then I was on my way. I reached peak 5024 around 8am. Miss Ellie did great. There was only one area where I had to help her up. We stayed at the top for a few minutes. I hadn't planned on going over to Flatiron, since I was there a few weeks ago. Being this close, it was hard not to hike over. We hiked over to flatiron and did a small loop at the top. Then we hiked down to the 4175 spur trail head. Most of this is off trail. It was very slow going. Less than a mile and hour going up. We didnt stay at the top very long. On the way back, we took the Palmer Mine Loop Trail back to the truck.
Route Manager put this trip at 5263 AEG. My phone had me at 4463.
I did forget my camera, so all the pictures where taken from my phone.
