Fire in the Sky UTV Fun Run

Back in the 1970's in the small town of Heber, there is rumored to have been an Alien Abduction of a Logger. This logger was eventually found by his friends and family in a telephone booth. The telephone booths where he was found still exist today and can be found next to Alien Autoworkx (green building). The question is, was he returned, or did he escape? You can visit these telephone booths and pose for pictures with 2 alien wooden statues that are positioned by the telephone booths. The Logger Travis Walton wrote a book to share his experience titled Fire in the Sky, which was later made into a movie.

The Heber-Overgaard Community is located just two and a half hours from the Phoenix area in the cool Ponderosa Pines of the Mogollon Rim and completely surrounded by the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. Do not let these small towns fool you. There is plenty to do! Fishing, Hunting, Biking, Hiking, camping and of course our personal favorite activity…UTV off-roading (lots of it). With off-road trails in every direction imaginable there is no shortage of wildlife and tremendous views.
