Canyon Lake – Location: Less than an hour East of Phoenix, AZ in the Tonto National Forest.

Here’s a few photos I took on my ride over to Canyon Lake.  A nice day in Arizona for a motorcycle ride.  To get to this lake, you have to ride over 2, one-land bridges.  They have quite a few camping spaces available for campers.  There’s also a lot of boats at the marina.  I’m not sure why, but I didn’t take any photos of the camping sites or the marina where they had quite a few boats.  There was a restaurant and a Steam Boat were you can take a ride around the lake.

Goldfield Ghost Town.  Location: 4650 N Mammoth Mine Rd, Apache Junction, AZ 85119.

Located East of Phoenix, AZ.  A nice relaxing place to walk around and take in the sights of the old Ghost Town.  After my walk around town, I sat on the patio with a nice cold drink and enjoyed a fantastic view of the Superstition Mountains.  I’ve been here several times and will definitely go back.

iIMG_5109As I rode North into Grand Teton National Park, I couldn’t believe the views.  Absolutely beautiful.  I couldn’t decide which of these photos to post here, so I posted all of them.  I would have liked to hike up to the Teton Glacier, but I just didn’t have enough time.  I did see a few people headed on foot that way though.  There’s also a lot of people riding bicycles in the park taking in the views.

IMG_5074My last stop in Arches National Park was “Delicate Arch”.  It was a 2 1/2 mile hike (5 miles round trip) and well worth it.  I arrived a little before sunset and stayed until sunset.  It was very cloudy to the west so I wasn’t able to get the sun setting on the arch.  I’ve heard you can get some amazing photos if the lighting is just right.  I’m still glad I was able to make the hike and take in the views.  It was nice and peaceful up on the mountain.

If you’ve been following my posts for the last couple of weeks, you know I’ve entered a lot from Arches National Park.  I don’t usually do this but I found it to be a very scenic place.  I hope I didn’t post to much.  Anyway, tomorrows post will some photos of my ride along the Colorado River along the Colorado River Recreation Area after I departed Moab, UT.
