Oatman, Arizona Burros — 16 Comments

  1. Hello, I just love the burros. They are so cute! The poppies are just gorgeous, what a beautiful sight! Enjoy your day!

  2. You can forget the wild horses and give us wild burro photos forever! We love them! So adorable and what a cool place to visit too!

  3. Such beautiful photos! Those burros have the cutest faces and the poppies are beautiful! I think the only place I’ve ever seen them thick like that is in the movie the Wizard of Oz!

  4. Aw, the burros are just too cute! And the poppies and single lupine are simply gorgeous! Like Beth said, the only place I’ve ever seen so many poppies was in “The Wizard of Oz”! Oatman looks like a cool place to visit! In more ways than one. ? Hopefully, the cooler weather up north will help Al to recover completely.

  5. Love your pics of the burros. You must have really gotten your clothes dirty taking those shots (BTW, I took you advice to get lower when shooting and got a great shot of some sailboat rigging while lying in bird poop).

    We saw the feral horses on Cumberland Island in Georgia recently. Their coats were so long and thick they almost looked like burros themselves.

  6. We’ve been to Oatman quit a few times over the years but have never seen poppies in Sitgreaves Pass. Because of you, I plan on taking a trip tomorrow. It’s about a 2 hour drive from our home in North Las Vegas. I just wanted to add that, the burros are not tame, but are pretty used to people and will come right up to you for something to eat. But they do kick if you come up behind them. Also, we were warned not to get boxed in on the sidewalk if you have food because they will keep advancing on you. Otherwise, yes, they are cute! :)

    • We were there on the 13th, so the flowers should still be good. They weren’t too far out of town, evening was the best light for sure. Ya, the burros seemed like they could still be “wild”, I wouldn’t want to get behind one or in their way.

  7. OH MARY, I had a late school night last night, making me sleep too late this morning, not allowing for my blog hop routine. I MISSED THIS ONE! I WANT A BURRO!!!!!!!!!!!!! The face of the one laying down….holy smokes, they are so cute. Equines are just too precious for words. YOU HAD FUN!

  8. What a find! The burros are adorable and the poppies are breathtaking. Hope Al gets feeling back to normal soon.

  9. Burros are SO cute. Your photos of them capture their personalities wonderfully!

    And those poppies! I’ve never seen anything like it. Aren’t you glad that you didn’t miss that. Is this part of the “super bloom” that I’ve been reading about?

    I sure hope that Al is feeling better. I’m thinking of you.
