With the summer blast furnace going, I wanted to get in a quick hike on Sunday morning. My original plan was to hike up on the cliffs near Canyon Lake and catch a sunrise. Driving up the Apache Trail, I noticed the really cool clouds over the mountain and not so many near the lake. So, I parked off McKellips Road and hiked to the Siphon Draw trail and waited for the color show.

The clouds and colors did manage to put on a nice show. I moved up Jacob's Trail a little. The clouds on the eastern horizon block the full experience, but it was a nice way to spend an early morning. Ironically, the colors were spectacular over near the lake.

I saw a couple hearty souls heading up the Siphon Draw. The Flatiron is "out of season" for me this time of year.

When the cloud cover took over about 7am, I finished up and hiked back to the truck.

A Sunday morning well spent.
