The Wild Burros of Oatman, Arizona

See the West, Off the Beaten Path

They roam the streets of Oatman, a small town in rural Arizona. The burros are descendants of those used by the miners way back when. As the mines started shutting down, the miners no longer had a use for the burros, so they set them free. The burros now roam around the Southwest desert areas, and are one of the fun attractions in this charming town.

Oatman, Arizona located on old Route 66.

    The donkeys in this town look very familiar…like a family reunion I once attended. I’m just saying…:) Looks fun:)

  2. I haven’t been to Oatman since I was a young Pirate, and I don’t remember the Burros. Looks like I need to ride my motorcycle there soon. Thanks for the info!
