Riding the Salt River Canyon

Long awaited ride fulfilled today. Scott and I rode US 60 east through the Salt River Canyon some 100+ miles from Apache Junction. The route climbs over a 5000 ft pass and then drops from 4300 ft to 3300 ft and back up to 4300 ft in just a few miles where the highway crosses the Salt River.

The following picture shows the southern cut to the bridge.

This map is of the canyon road at the river.

This is the river as it flows toward the bridge.
