Flatiron Peak, Superstition Mountains

Lost Dutchman State Park, Arizona

March 23, 2012

Once again Kim had a conference in Scottsdale and I got to explore another area in the great Phoenix valley. The Superstions or "Soups" as they are locally called boarder the eastern rim of the huge valley that Phoenix sits in. I had heard good things about this area on previous trips but I never checked them out until today. One of the employees at the Paradise Valley REI had recommended a hike in the Lost Dutchman State Park area.

So I bought a map of the area and headed out early the next morning to make the hour drive.
