First a beautiful sunrise seen from the balcony of our hotel.

Then, Superstition Mountains and hiking in Lost Dutchman State Park. Located on AZ88, 40 miles east from Phoenix, the park is named after the fabled lost gold mine. Several trails lead from the park into the Superstition Wilderness. Superstition Mountains, east from Phoenix are very spectacular and they are surrounded by the beautiful Sonoran Desert.

This hiking trail took us three hours. It was very warm and sunny, a nice change after three rainy days. We came back to our hotel exhausted but happy.

Many ambitious younger hikers were trying to climb on top of that peak called the Flatiron.
