Trip to Oatman, November 3rd, 2012 SCMM took a run up to Laughlin, where we spent the weekend. The MINIs ran to Oatman, AZ on Saturday, an old mining town full of burros, gift shops, and tourists. The road out to Oatman was twisty and great, and Winnie kept up with the pack just fine! Below are a few photos of our trip.
The burros are tame, in as much as they let you feed them the alfalfa cubes that you buy in a bag. A few pushy ones did a little kicking toward each other, or grabbed the bag out of your hand, but they were pretty well behaved for wild animals. I also noticed that their hooves had been trimmed. Probably a good idea. Otherwise, they are free to roam through the desert and through the town.
After Oatman, we ran to Pirates Cove in Needles, CA and had lunch. It's a resort on a side branch of the river, so ski boats come and dock and have lunch there. Very nice!
We gambled a bit, but the house won in the end. :-) It's all good, though. It was a great trip, and we are now ready to go back to work.
