It's been a month since I've been out to Flatiron. Things I noticed today: 1. Barbie Doll season is officially here. 2. "See this spot right in the middle of the trail? Looks like a great place to sit and take a break." season is also in full swing. Made for some good entertainment. Plus, it was an absolutely gorgeous day to be out there. Managed to make my fastest time down and fastest round trip.

Stressful day at work + a short amount of time for a workout = a quick trip up Siphon Draw. Something about a hike that makes everything better.

A great hike/adventure today. Gorgeous day to be out and about. I hadn't been on most of these trails until today. Robbers Roost is a nifty little area. Had fun climbing the "chimney" out. Lots of great views of Weaver's Needle. Went down to Fremont Saddle then took Geronimo Cave Trail back.

A nice, easy meandering with a friend and her kids. A nice simple warm-up for a run I am doing this evening.

Met some new friends for an easy hike up Siphon Draw. Fairly uneventful until we reached the basin to see a couple of paragliders in the area (see photos).

The plan was to do a quick trip. Ended up helping 3 twenty-something year-old guys find their way up the trail. Took them up to the summit, to see the memorial from the plane crash and finally over to the Flatiron. Their previous attempt to reach Flatiron was not successful so they were quite appreciative to have someone show them the way. Beautiful morning to be out an enjoying a little adventure.

Finally had a few hours to get away today. There are no mountains for me to climb here, but did find that the Buckeye State has a trail that goes to all 4 corners of the state. And lucky for me, a portion of that trail starts about a quarter mile from my sister's house. My goal was to make it to 40-Acre Pond, which I did. Not much elevation change here, just a few rolling hills. The trail goes along the old Miami-Erie Canal among trees, next to fields, under highways, and even through a few backyards.
The day started out foggy but it was mostly sunny by the time I finished.

Had enough time to squeeze in a quick hike to the saddle before I catch a flight for an unplanned/unexpected trip back home. The quick hike also gave me a chance to start breaking in my new Sportivas which were long overdue (see photo).

Went up Siphon Draw and enjoyed the breeze and the view from the horns. Did a little exploring then headed down enjoying the sunset. Almost down when I was talked into going back up a bit with the full moon rising.

Took 4 friends/acquaintances out for their first attempt. Only two were able to make the trip to the top this time. Hopefully, they will give it another try once they've had more conditioning and it's a little cooler.

My friends who planned this hike both canceled on me. Oh well, gave me some time for meditation at the saddle and they missed out on a beautiful sunset!

The cloud cover was great, though the humidity was not. A few raindrops started to fall just as I reached the top and continued on and off until the basin. A nice day for a hike.
