Salt River Canyon

Apache Junction, AZ  High 90  Low 63

Since we didn’t have any internet to keep us entertained, I asked Jim if he wanted to take all his girls for a ride. Little did he know that ride would end up being over 300 miles.

We hitched up the girls in the backseat and filled up a cooler with water and ice and headed out about 7:15.


I wanted to see what the drive through Salt River Canyon between Globe and Show Low was like. It is beautiful. You drive all the way down one side of the canyon to the river below and then climb back up on the other side.

After driving this beautiful, winding road, we made the decision that we will not going this way when we head north. We did see several rigs towing their way through the canyon but we’ll take the easier way north through Polson.

After reaching Show Low we headed over to Payson for lunch and then back down to Miami cruising by an extremely low Roosevelt Lake. We arrived back in AJ about 4:00 and the girls were certainly ready for dinner.

Still having internet issues. Maybe someday I’ll be back to reading blogs again. Fingers crossed.


  1. Looks like a very pretty drive Sandy

  2. What a great drive and to be pampered by your honey....priceless!

  3. You've made a wise decision to not pull your rig through that beautiful canyon. It is beautiful though, and I hope there were plenty of places for you to pull over and gawk!

  4. Wow---what gorgeous pictures. That was great that you could get out and take a day-trip... How special is that!!!! I would be out wandering around every day IF I were there... Gorgeous area. WOW!

  5. I love driving the Salt River Canyon since it means I am heading for the Pines and Lakes. Hope to head up in June

  6. We took that in the RV a couple times. I remember it being pretty and not too scary.
