My wife, son and I arrived at the trailhead at 6:00am. We took the normal route south to the restrooms and then north up the draw. Just before the Siphon Draw bowl we passed a group of hikers who said they had started at 4:30 am. There weren’t many on the trail. My guess is it’s still a little hot. My wife and son hit Flatiron first while I proceeded to the top of Superstition Peak, North. I swung over to look at the memorial first before heading up. At the top I worked the radio for about 30 minutes for Summits on the Air and was joined by the family near the tail end of the activation. The views were spectacular as expected. Somebody posted an American flag to a century tree which is where I set up the antenna mast. On the way back down it was still a relatively nice temp but the last mile or so from the car got a little hot.
