View of Salt River Canyon, which bisects the entire length of a 32,101-acre wilderness area within the Tonto National Forest in Arizona. U.S. Route 60 and Arizona State Route 77 traverse a winding (some drivers say harrowing) route through the canyon, descending close to the river at the bottom before crossing it and ascending back up the opposite side. In the right light, a few views overlooks have been compared favorably to the larger, much more famous Grand Canyon to the north in Arizona. Parts of the canyon belong to separate Indian tribes: the San Carlos Apaches and the White Mountain Apaches. Original image from Carol M. Highsmith’s America, Library of Congress collection.
