Robbie Knievel saw Palm Springs from an unusual vantage point on Oct. 24.

The daredevil motorcycle jumper, who has followed in the footsteps of his late father, Evel, cleared 30 golf carts sitting side-by-side in front of the Spa Resort Casino in downtown Palm Springs. The jump closed out the resort's Brews & BBQ: Food, Music, Craft Brews & Cool Cars event.

Knievel did add some unexpected excitement to the jump when his motorcycle slid into bales of hay. But he was up and walking immediately after.

Here is an assortment of photos from Knievel's jump and the Brews & BBQ event.
