Photographer's Note

Land sailing, also known as sand yachting or land yachting, is the act of moving across land in a three-wheeled vehicle powered by wind through the use of a sail. The term comes from analogy with (water) sailing. Historically, land sailing was used as a mode of transportation or recreation. Since the 1950s it has evolved primarily into a racing sport. (From Wikipedia)

A desert near Primm, Nevada, about 40 miles west of Las Vegas, is popular with land sailors.
