This was what attracted me most to Oatman, Arizona --- the BURROS! I knew the kids would love them - although I really don't know the difference between a burro and a donkey (I'll probably google this later).

But after swering off the main road to go for another 13 miles off the beaten path to this old mining town, you know you are there when you spot these donkeys...I mean, Burros..

They're just everywhere and they are so tamed and used to having people around - although I still made sure my kids won't go on these burros' behinds lest they get kicked! But no such thing happened...and people were feeding them these huge carrots - just be careful with small hands of the kids but the burros seem to know to take just the carrots (and not bite the hands).

Truly a fun experience!
