Salt River, US 60
Salt River, US 60 Globe Reviews
Hudge Arizona canyon between Globe and Carrizo Dec 05, 2016
I was driving SW on US 60 from north of Carrizo on a long trip to Tucson. I was relaxing at the wheel when I saw a huge hole in the ground ahead of me...the Salt River Canyon. It took me almost two hours to cross the canyon due to extreme curves in the road, photo opps, and lunch.
The road curved a lot going down and up the cliffs. The muddy Salt River was nice; where I fixed and ate my lunch. Then the road curved a lot going back up. The Salt River "flows" through Phoenix but is sucked dry for agriculture before reaching Phoenix, except for flash floods.
The Salt River Canyon is very large and beautiful. I really enjoyed driving this canyon.
