I stopped on an elevated pullout and took an early morning shot.
Salt River bridge
Looking downstream from the area of the bridge.
Another view of the bridge.
Power lines across the desert.
Mountains rising up from the desert.
First crossing of Cherry Creek. It is just a peaceful, lazy little stream.
Saguaro cactus everywhere!
Beautiful red butte.
As I climbed up the mountainside, I took a look back and saw the creek below.
Entering the Sierra Anchas wilderness
Somewhere up there are some ruins. I might have to hike up there someday.....
