While visiting Phoenix, AZ, I saw a tour guide talking about the Salt River kayak tripâ€¦ I enjoyed kayaking when I was younger, and I was sure I could still do it, however my husband wasn’t hepped up on kayaking, but our cousin agreed to go with me, then her husband and mine stayed condo and let us get wet.
The Salt River kayaking trip was a multiple-hour adventure down the Lower Salt River which takes you through the Tonto National Forest; The two of us set out from Saquaro Lake, paddled the Salt River and admired the native wildlife.
It blissful me to see the wild horses, and seeing the Tonto National Forest from the water was spectacular. The two of us went early in the day before it go too hot. The two of us parked at the Saquaro Lake Guest Ranch, where all of us got directions on kayaking and started the river tour, and at 8 AM the temperature was 87 degrees, but it felt more comfortable since all of us were on the river and going through the mountains! By 10 AM, our tour had ended, and all of us wished all of us could have gone further. It was 92 degrees when all of us got out of the kayaks and into the air-conditioned shuttle that took us back to Saquaro Lake Guest Ranch. I had to confess that the Salt River kayak trip was a single highlight of our trip to Phoenix, AZ. The two of us were going to the Grand Canyon before all of us went home, and our husbands were going with us. That could be our next largest highlight of our trip.
