Lower Jack's Canyon
 
 
The lower part of Jack's Canyon meanders its way through an otherwise flat expanse of high desert south of Winslow, Ariz. (when it reaches the Winslow area it joins the Little Colorado River). I have never read anything about lower Jack's Canyon. I have never known anyone else who has hiked there. Trails don't exist in the area. It is these qualities that make the canyon a great place to explore. Among other things, I found some petroglyphs tucked inside an enclave at the bottom of the canyon. I haven't researched this particular site so I can't say anything about the human and bighorn sheep except that they're intriguing.

 
 




Inside the enclave, right next to the petroglyphs,
were these cliff dwellings. I believe they were
constructed in A.D. 2008 by indigenous swallows.
