|Take a trip back in time. A lot of the stores do not take plastic. Have cash ready!|
|The main drag in Oatman, AZ.|
Later with Laughlin, Nevada coming into being as a gaming destination on the Virgin River, Oatman started to see life again by the 1980s. In 1995, the gold mine was re-opened, however the price of gold was so low that the mine was shut down again. Now, Oatman is back on Route 66 and the burros are the big attraction.
|Oatman pride and sense of humor.|
|A little freaked out by my entourage of asses, but charmed just the same.|
There is also an old western style gun fight held for the tourists with requests for donations. These donations help keep this once thriving gold mine town from really becoming a true ghost town.
|Don't hit the car!|
|Burro feeding time.|
|More nostalgic photo ops from the town revived by jackasses.|
|Some love for Cacti in Oatman. Pretty incredible species. Too bad they do not survive my "black" thumb.|
|Baby burros are marked with a red circle on their forehead. This indicates they are not old enough to consume the carrots.|
|Just go with it!|
