Down on the Farm: Four-wheelin' in the desert

Email News Alerts

Last week, a neighbor from back home and a fellow snowbird showed me an adventure I have never before experienced. 

I was invited to go four-wheelin' on the Arizona desert. 


Three parties met at a remote staging area just north of Florence. We unloaded the four-wheelers and planned the day.

I was given a choice. Either I would wear a kerchief over my nose and mouth, or I would wear one of those medical-looking dust masks.
