The Pass through the mountain generates alot of wind, based on your location relative to the pass you can find wind ranging from 5 mph to 40 mph, often the wind is gusty though. There is alot of open desert with sage brush, if you can find a little opening and dont plan to land often you can fly anywhere. Desert area could also be used for power kiting for those of you that are insane. Mostly Sage brush, no Cacti.

Locations of note.

Demuth Park: located at Gene Autry and Mesquite Ave. many trees, but plenty of room for 1 to 2 Revs. best area at this park is on the softball/baseball field if they are not in use. Further inland from the pass resulting in lighter winds (was Howards preferd location)

Victoria Park: located at Racquet Club and via Miraleste, room between rows of trees to get several Revs up. Wind is strong and gusty vented highly recommended


Open Desert: I found a nice open area of desert at highway 111 and Snow creek Rd (close to I-10 and hwy 111 interchange) Great constant wind right in the pass, and no brush to speak of. (my new favortest place to fly out here)
