I believe the backstory of the making of this chapel is that it was made by a local offroading club for one of their long time members who was getting married. What joy! It was our 2nd attempt to discover it from random clues. It’s a perfect short ride… about 8 miles from home.
Went exploring about ~15 miles from home on the Polaris Rzr to get some fresh air. Blessed that social distancing is easy to practice when you’re outdoors in our area… simply, because there’s lots of land to spread out and there aren’t as many people as you find in the big cities. On this ride, we discovered the United Oatman Mine. In one word – creepy!
It was a chilly, windy day for a Polaris 4×4 Off-Roading ride but our neighbors were up to it so off we went to find a few hills to practice our driving skills on. Hills turned into what I call rollercoasters here in the Arizona desert. Safety in numbers as we were shown how it’s done and we simply mimicked our way into success and a new found confidence.
We learned, from other locals, that a permit is required in this small stretch of land near the Colorado River that offers access to some fun sand dunes and a handful of little beaches. Sounds like a great reason to get permission from the Indian Tribes (only $100/year)!
Our 1st off-roading joyride on our 2015 Polaris Rzr 1000 XP 4. Excited to go with our neighbor who owns a side by side. Bill recently installed a horn and license plate kit so we can eventually make it street legal. We’re interested to learn how it rides on grass, gravel and sand. Here’s how it went.
