Are those. . . Cantaloupes?

May 2, 2009
Cantaloupe Corner is almost 3 weeks old , still a brand spankin' new shop. I am having so much fun getting the foundation started for what I know will be an exciting ride! I know everyone is wondering, so I wanted to tell the story of where Cantaloupe Corner got it's unique name.



So why "Cantaloupe Corner"?


When my husband was younger his family would drive through the Salt River Canyon here in AZ quite often. The grades are very steep and the roads are very windey. Once when he was about 10 years old, his family was on their was to Phoenix and they were heading around a very sharp curve when, to thier great suprise, they noticed that a truck had tipped and spilled it's entire load on the side of the road. When they got closer they noticed it was a whole truck-load of Cantaloupes strewn all across the hightway! From that day on they called that turn in the road "Cantaloupe Corner". (To me, the name always sounded like a fruitstand or cute corner store.) Now, as we drive through the Salt River Canyon with our family he tells us the story of Cantaloupe Corner every time.
Has a nice ring to it. . . Cantaloupe Corner.
