Catch a Sunset at Three Sisters

Wave Cave Parking Lot - Search Nearby - Added by Calvin Weibel

This is one of the best spots in the area to do sunset photography, with all kinds of hiking opportunities nearby.

Three Sisters is a huge rock formation in the southern area of the Superstition Mountains.  This spot is only about an hour outside of Phoenix and it's a great spot to do photography in the evening or morning.

This is accessed from the Wave Cave parking lot on the way to the nearby Peralta Trailhead.  If you have time to hike while you're here, consider following the trail up to the Wave Cave itself.

From Phoenix, Tempe, or Mesa take the 60 east to Apache Junction.  The road curves southeast and a few minutes later you'll need to take a left on Peralta Rd.  After a short distance this turns into a long dirt road.  The road starts out very smooth, and there are a few rough spots but 4wd is not necessarily needed.
