West Desert has a regulation-size gym, and we eagerly shared the bleachers with family and friends, some who had driven an equal or longer distance from the other direction.
This was the first basketball game for Desert Girl and Desert Boy. They were interested for awhile.
It didn't take long for Desert Girl to want to go play.
Meanwhile, I was having some fun trying to capture action shots as the Hawks and Eagles played.
The Hawks won the game. Then we went into the cafeteria and enjoyed a $5 dinner put on by the PTO. It was tasty, and much appreciated, since we then had an hour drive home.
long article recently about the West Desert basketball team that is a great read and helps explain some of the adaptations to living in a remote place.
