Even from afar, it’s gorgeous. Sure, this image is doctored, but I assure you, that it’s not that far off. The colors of the desert make for awesome scenery while cruising down the river.

Canyon Lake is special for many reasons. I’m grateful for the Salt River, otherwise, there would be no Canyon Lake.

Believe it or not, the river can still get foggy out there in the desert. Though, if you come early enough, then you can watch the sun clear it all away.

If we do say so ourselves. Arizona sunsets are the most beautiful in the country. There really isn’t a bad place in Arizona to witness them. However, the Salt River is definitely one of the better places.
