Day 13: Route 66

Lindsay, CA to Flagstaff, AZ

Mostly today was driving, but we did take one scenic byway through Oatman, AZ and Historic Route 66.  There is a herd of "wild" burros that live in Oatman.  They actually are pretty tame as all the tourists feed them.  As you can see, they hang out on the roads and wait for the cars.
This one practically climbed in our car looking for a handout.
They are pretty much all over town and again, not that wild.



Here is Legend, getting her kicks..

According to Wikipedia this stretch of Route 66 was one of the places that inspired scenes in the Pixar movie Cars.
 It's hard to tell in the picture but you can actually see the interstate in the distance (the little white lines are trucks), just like in the movie.

Great Pics!
We gave our donkey to our neighbor because he kept getting through our fences and going over there anyway. They really are stubborn pains in the a**!
