Contact the hike leader by email or phone by 9:00 pm the Wednesday before the hike for meeting time and location.

Black Friday and the next day, Saturday, won't get you down if you head up to Flagstaff with "Missed The Turn Mark." That's right, late November we are heading down into Sandy's Canyon and into Walnut Canyon. We will stop at the "Crack of Doom" (bring a light) and then as far into Walnut Canyon as the trail or our spirit of adventure permits.

Long term forecasts indicate that there could already be snow with temps into the low 40s for a high. Be prepared for this situation with proper boots and layers. If it looks too snowy, we may cancel and select another hike.

Bring a minimum of 2 liters of water, snacks, and I would suggest a change of socks and gloves. Snow shoes could be in order.

Apres the frozen tundra, we can nosh in Flagstaff and thaw out.

Cost for non-members is $5.
