Salt River Canyon~Scenic Sunday~052911




Hubby and I traveled down Highway 60 from Fort Apache back to Phoenix yesterday afternoon. This road snakes along the Salt River canyon, which is a very deep one. It goes up and down and up and down and several cars overheated along the way and one very large tanker truck. It is on the Apache reservation and there was water flowing in it. It was so far down, however, and I never got a good photo of i! It runs for about 200 miles and then goes into Phoenix. If you travel Highway 60, make sure your car is in good running condition and you have enough engine coolant as there are very few turnoffs and limited cell phone coverage! I did notice an Arizona Highway Patrol car (one) that did follow the road, but there were cars which had overheated and he apparently hadn't stopped to investigate them. Here are some photos I took yesterday along the road. Scenic Sunday for May 29, 2011. Now, THAT's a deep canyon!!! To see other participants, please visit: http://scenicsunday.blogspot.com/
