After leaving our motorhome at 3-T's RV Repair for a little suspension tuning, we jumped in the Jeep to head to the city of Burros. As always the road to Oatman (Route 66) provided some great scenic vistas.
Now there are a few dangers when going to Oatman, OK, not really a danger, more of an attraction. The wild burros.
Not only do they greet visitors to the town, they have a tendency to slow traffic. Joyce tries to lead one out of the road so this pickup can pass. The burros are oblivious to car horns.
Of course they can get really up close and personal with vehicles. They are curious and are looking for handouts. Carrots are sold by most of the businesses for the tourists to feed them.
It appeared to us that an effort was being made to keep the burros out of town, as on the south end, a business had opened which provided a feeding bin for the burros, carrots for the tourists to buy for feeding to the burros and of course the usual tourist trinkets. It did provide a great photo opportunity for those that wanted a picture with the burros.
