Flat Iron No.1

sunny 28 °C

Today I hiked up the Front Range's No.1 flat iron. The climb to 7,132ft on the 3 mile path was definitely more strenuous than I was expecting and took much longer also. The view at the summit treated spectacular views over Boulder and towards Denver. I spent some time just eating lunch and reading.

This evening I met up with one of the Australians who have seemingly been setting the route for me. I had already met them in Washington, Savannah, New Oleans and Austin so it was good to catch up on what had been going on since we last saw each other.

I've decided that tomorrow I'm going to drive north for two days in Rocky Mountain National Park before meeting up with a university friend in Denver.
