Blanco and I hit Munds Mountain from Jack's Canyon Trail today. We got an early start (6 a.m.) to try to beat the heat and any storms.

Jack's Canyon Trail left with me with mixed reviews. Its destination is worthy, if using it to summit Munds, however, the trail could use a little work and is not overly scenic for the area. In particular, there are a few annoying acacia in the first few miles that could be trimmed and there may be a few spots up canyon where one has to do a double take to locate the trail where it crosses the main drainage. We saw a black bear about three-quarters of the way up, but I was focused on keeping Blanco off of its heals and never even got out the camera. Oh well, seeing a black bear is hardly an occasion anymore these days, although, it was my first sighting in the Sedona area, so it was a pleasant little surprise. We enjoyed an extended break and lunch on Munds and then headed back the same way we came. It got a little warm towards the end, but the conditions were generally nice. Only two spots with standing water along the trail and Blanco made good use of both of them. I did not see any other hikers on the trails all day.
