Roses are red, violets are blue, click the pics of the park so their easy to view.
Sara Park has it all, and the only way it could be any closer is if it was in the boondocking area with me.
Right across the highway from where I'm boondocked is a vast park called Sara Park, which has all kinds of things going on. A couple of things that interested me was the stock-car race track, but looking on the Internet, it seems like they're not going to have any races until after I leave, which might be in another day or two, or another week or so, depending on how I feel about dealing with Spring Break, or if it even happens.
There's a motocross track that will be active this weekend, so I'll watch that. There's a shooting range I might go to if I feel like burning up a few rounds. Many hiking and biking trails run through the hills at the Park, which looks interesting. I've been walking through the flat desert for so long that walking on some hills sounds more stimulating to me.
There's also going to be a rodeo there in March. But will, it looks like it's a professional "PRCA" rodeo, and they usually won't let you take a large camera in because they don't want you taking quality pictures of the professional riders without their written permission. They also don't want you walking around outside the arena trying to get a better look at the action; they rent you a specific seat and expect you to stay in it. So after dealing with the PRCA rodeos for a while, I gave up and stopped going; amateur rodeos are more fun anyway.
So it looks like a person could spend a lot of time just going to Sara Park, and the entrance gate is literally walking distance from my boondocking spot. But I need to go into town and get some pictures of the bridge and other tourist attractions just In case I decide to suddenly hat up and bug out before the Spring Breakers overrun the place.
I also need to get to the Home Depot at the other end of town, about 12 miles away, And it just so happens Home Depot is just down the street from the Walmart and the Lowes. It looks like all the big-box stores decided to build at the north end of town, which tells me that it used to be where property was the cheapest.
It's interesting to me how that works. Big-box stores build away from where the people are living because the properties cheaper. But they're big enough to become anchors that smaller businesses will build around. Then developers see all the activity going on and built apartment buildings and housing developments in the area. Then 10 or 15 years later, big-box stores end up right in the middle of the action.
The road through the park that takes you to all the different places, to do all the different things. I think the road itself is an event.
There's an archery range near the shooting range. It's not very fancy like at Ben Avery's gun range in Phoenix, that has Olympic archery targets, but this has targets out to 100 yards which is a lot farther than I can hit anything with my bow.
I didn't drive all the way to the gun range I just took this picture from off in the distance. I can see some Skeet towers, and a trap range, and there's also a rifle and pistol range.
The Speedway is going to have some racing later in March, but due to the rapidly approaching plague of Spring Breakers that might soon be descending on Lake Havasu like a cloud of locusts destroying everything in their path, I doubt if I'll be here that long.
A BMX track for all the bicycle racers out there. I don't know much about BMX racing, which I assume stands for "bicycle motocross" as opposed to motorcycle motocross. You would think that old baby-boomer geezers like myself would know more about it considering how we baby-boomers invented the sport by stripping down our little Stingray bicycles and racing each other in the woods, but we don't get any credit for it. We also don't get any credit for inventing the Skateboard, the cell phone, the modern computer, the Internet, or sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.
