Salt River Near Chrysotile (09497500), November 26, 1935.
(R.E. Cook, #2280) This upstream view from the old, two-lane bridge that crosses the Salt River in Salt River Canyon shows a relatively small discharge of 277 ft3/s. Scattered native shrubs, including willows and brickellbush, appear to occupy the floodplain at right center. The road leading to Show Low, Arizona, appears as a one-lane cut through the hillslope at center.
