I haven’t been able to ride much this year because we’ve been on mandatory 6 day work weeks since January! Other than riding to work, I haven’t been able to venture very far from home yet. I did take a short ride this afternoon and here’s a few photos I came up with.
Headed North towards the Tonto National Forest Recreation Area along the Lower Salt River. Just East of Phoenix, AZ.
This photo doesn’t reflect it, but this road was quite busy with weekend travelers.
At the intersection of the Bush Highway and North Ellsworth Rd, is the Salt River Recreation area.
Here you can rent a tube and get a bus pass to float down the Salt River.
All day rates for a tube rental and bus rides is $17 per person for the entire day.
I saw quite a few busses coming and going today. The bus ride will take you up river and you’ll float back down to when the busses picked you up.
I stopped a one of the parking lots along the river for a few photos.

Groups of people had set up sun shades and were enjoying the afternoon.
A nice sunny day here in Arizona.
