Locations: Salt River

The central valley that Phoenix was built on contains the Salt River, which ancient Hohokam peoples used for farming in canals. The water got diverted by Mormon settlers but some water still passes through north Mesa, and during the summer time it’s a lush cool spot to shoot. There’s a bit with a forest (unusual for Phoenix) and a bit with mini rock islands, and lots of vultures and hawks around. It’s also pretty deserted early in the morning, and faces a stunning view of Red Mountain. It’s my favorite summertime location.
