Located on the San Carlos Indian Reservation, the Salt River Canyon is a spectacular scenic drive on Highway 60/77 north of Globe. Several pullovers allow you to stop and view the dramatic scenery, down to the canyon floor.

Once you're at the bottom, it's mostly a rafting launch spot. There are no hiking trails, no visitor center, only a couple of picnic tables.

Don't expect a lot of fanfare down there, but do expect to pay the fee of $15 per head anyway to spend any time on the grounds. The cost for launching is more.

Peeps! In honor of Easter, my traveling companion and I downed Peeps as we took in the sights of Arizona's East Valley.
