Exploring the Hidden Gems of Arizona's Backcountry
Destination: Upper Salt River
The Upper Salt River runs through the Salt River Canyon Wilderness, often referred to as Arizona’s other Grand Canyon. While it lacks the size of the Grand Canyon, it certainly measures up in terms of outstanding, rugged Geology, and sheer scenic beauty. It is one of a very few rivers to flow through the Saguaro Cactus forests of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, a truly exotic landscape.
