I had too much going on this weekend to join in the festivities up north at Chums HAZFest but a trip to Sedona and back sounded great. Great it was!

Joe and I parked the car at the Jack's Canyon Trailhead and started our journey. The trail has a handful of spur trails and can get confusing at times. We didn't have any troubles and you are in a canyon so I don't think you can end up in the wrong place.

I had been up Jack's Canyon once before but I didn't go to Munds or Lee. After crossing the saddle between the two you skirt along a shelf on a nice little trail. This part was amazing and the views were top notch. Once on top of Lee we made our way across. Along the way we saw a group of stags that was incredible. I have never seen that many male elk together in one spot. I figure they must have been watching some preseason football or having a bachelor party. Probably the latter because they didn't want to be photographed and bolted when they saw us.

From here we went across and found a killer spot to climb up. It is a little more than a scramble and could be classified as a class for I believe. Nothing too scary as a fall would only be for 10 or 12 feet. The views from the top of this perch were killer.

Lastly we found a route back down and out to the trail we came in on. This was after a failed attempt going down a steep ravine. One spot had a large pour off and it wasn't worth chancing.

Now on the Jack's Canyon trail we looked back at where we just were and it gave a cool sense of accomplishment.

I really enjoyed this hike. Thanks for putting it together Hose-A.
