Chiriaco Summit

A simple paved strip adjacent to I-10 just east of Palm Springs. We met a few other Cherokee drivers there for a burger. Decent little cafe, good burger/shake.

My first longer XC after getting my PPL, and the first XC with my wife.

Kingman airport

KIGM was a military training field in WW2. It had thousands of aircraft on the field, which extended quite a ways to the southwest at that time. It is much smaller now, although local lore has it that expended cannon shells and other training artifacts can be found in the desert to the south.

KIGM has an excellent breakfast/lunch cafe open every day except Monday.
