Today 5 of us (Dan & Pat Martenson from Escanaba,MI and Jan Morse from Bakersfield, CA and ourselves) went on a roadtrip to Oatman, AZ. Oatman, located on old Route 66, is/was an old fronter mining town turned into a tourist trap. One of the attractions are the "wild" burros that come into the town daily and beg for carrots from the tourists.
Here are Teddy and Jan in one of the souvenor shops.
The shops all sell bunches of carrots to feed the burros with.
Here Jan gives away her last carrot.
Pat appears to have lost her way.
This is the hotel where Carole Lombard and Clark Gable are purported to have stayed on their wedding night.
From Oatman we drove over to the AVI Casino in Laughlin, NV for dinner before returning to Lake Havasu.
