Saw Mill Picnic Area

About The Location

The Saw Mill Picnic Area is a terrible name for a beautiful shoot location.  It's a great place to do a Fall photo shoot and I can imagine that it would be a really nice winter location as well if the parking lot is open.  There is a long bridge spanning the river, and a cement path that winds its way through American park canyon.  The only problem with this location is the parking.  There is a small parking lot that has a very limited number of spaces, so don't go on the weekends or you will be looking for a place to park on the side of the road.
