“Desert rats”. The sand dunes 5 miles to the west of town offer months of fun for Quad riders, motorcyclists and dune buggy enthusiasts. For “River rats”, the Colorado River, 30 miles to the north offers a variety of water sports from waterskiing, inner tubing to sitting on a sand bar and watching the world go by.
Seeing all the photos and memorabilia from the Peach's collection was awe-inspiring. I was particularly struck by the photos of endurance flights, planes that would stay aloft for more than 1,000 hours, getting fuel and food from a chase car on the runway.
