Salt River Rafting
The Salt River in central Arizona is a gem in the desert and an oasis for the people of Phoenix. The Salt River runs west out of the White Mountains through 2000 foot deep Salt River Canyon. The canyon is lined with giant Saguaro cacti and beautiful rock walls.
The Salt River is fed by snowmelt and only runs in the spring from March to May. There is not always enough snow pack to provide for a rafting season however. In 2007, there will be a season so start planning your trip today.
Most Salt River Rafting outfitters run a one day trip and a five day trip. The Salt River is just a couple hour drive from Phoenix so the one day trips are convenient and fun. The five day trips are a fantastic extended adventure that provides excellent rapids and scenery.
