Arizona Day Trips -  Gila Box and the Salsa Trail
Late Spring -  Early Summer



A fun way to see the southern parts of Arizona, The Salsa Trail extends approximately 240 miles and unites the towns of Safford, Pima, Thatcher, Clifton, Duncan, Wilcox, and York.  It also has about a dozen Mexican restaurants, a chili farm, and a tortilla factory! This summer plan a trip around the trail and during the boring weeks visit various restaurants!

The Gila Box is a 23,000-acre Riparian National Conservation Area, truly an oasis in the desert. It has four perennial waterways - the Gila and San Francisco rivers and Bonita and Eagle creeks, which are the lifeline for this remarkable place. The Gila River canyon section, known as the Gila Box, is composed of patchy mesquite woodlands, mature cottonwoods, sandy beaches, and grand buff-colored cliffs. Bonita Creek, popular for birdwatching, hiking, and picnicking, is lined with large cottonwoods, sycamores, and willows. The perennial creek and rip
arian vegetation make this a cool year-round desert oasis.

Cliff dwellings, historic homesteads, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep and over 200 species of birds make this year-round watery desert refuge worth the short drive from Safford.

Directions
The Gila Box Riparian National Conservation Area is located 20 miles northeast of Safford in Graham and Greenlee counties.

   You do not need to drive into "town" to enjoy many cultural, recreational, and the continuing educational opportunities.   The Arizona Senior Academy (ASA) sponsors many events right up the road at the Academy Village. Our neighborhoods have a friendly relationship and Coyote Creek residents are invited to sign up for events.  It's a great way to join up with good people who want to improve their neighborhoods and take care of their mind and body.  Find exercise classes here.

Note to visitors:   Because some of the events overfill the hall, we have established a reserved-seat policy.  This means non-Academy members need to call 647-0980 or email
info@arizonasenioracademy.org to make a reservation. The first twenty-five people to reserve a seat will be able to enter the hall fifteen minutes prior to the announced starting time of the event and may sit anywhere, as will Academy members.  Visitors without a reservation will be able to seat themselves five minutes prior to the announced starting time.  Visitor parking is behind the Community Center.  Upon entry into Academy Village there will be a stop sign.  Turn right and follow the yellow dividing line in the road to a sign that reads “Additional Parking”.  Turn left onto Vivaldi Court and follow the road down into the parking lot. The rear half of the Great Room is equipped with an inductive loop, providing assistive listening for those with hearing aids. To use, activate T-coil in hearing aid.
