Salt River Canyon


Look to the left on the photo and you will see the road winding down to the Salt River. What awesome twisties!


In between Springerville, AZ and the state line I took a rest.


Ahhhh...and finally, New Mexico!


Riding east, I ended up at Magdalena, NM... where I filled up with gas and road the 83 miles north to I40. About half way there, on NM 117, I came upon a nice surprise.....La Ventana Arch.


The area is called the Narrows because NM 117 is squeezed into a narrow corridor between the black lava flows of El Malpais and the towering sandstone cliffs that mark the west edge of Cebollita Mesa.
