Did anyone bring the Dramamine?

The road to get to and from the raft launch, and the Salt River itself, are both very curvy! This shot was taken on the way back to Phoenix, from one of the overlooks. The cluster of cars marks where rafters leave their vehicles. Just below and beyond that is the launch beach (with the first set of rapids coming almost immediately), then you paddle and float your way 13 miles to the take out, downstream and around countless curves through this gorgeous canyon.

  9. I think I will take the road more traveled. Rafting never appealed to me, but a lot of folks get their thrills in our rivers. You found a nice spot to get the full picture here.
