The Sagebrush Ocean, as I see it through your lens, is a fascinating place. Love these images and the write-up that accompanies them. Leaves me wanting to learn more. I’m sure that when I see a newborn I’ll want one for company on the back 30. Thanks Alison.
I am so happy to hear that my presentations are leaving a positive impression Nick. I love this place and would not by choice live anywhere else in the world. Thanks for stopping in and commenting. I will try to show you a little Burro soon. 🙂
Such great photos, Alison, I really enjoyed these. We found burros for the first time on our trip to the Nevada desert last month. Those were in a very remote area known as Seven Troughs. I was surprised at how friendly there were…at least that was true of one couple and one stallion living alone. The stallion even sort of followed the car along for a bit. He seemed quite curious. All-in-all, these creatures are much cuter than I had imagined.
Great that you found them out there! They are more wide spread then you might think. I have found them in the Black Rock and Smoke Creek deserts and up on the Sheldon Antelope Refuge and now north of Susanville. They really are cute. Thanks for stopping in and sharing your experience. 🙂
Beautiful photos, as usual, Alison. I really enjoyed your narrative about the burros. If I didn’t live in Texas, I think Nevada would be my second choice. I visited the area many years ago and loved it.
Thanks Bob. I never really intended to write much when I started this blog. I thought I would just post pictures but figured out that they need context. So glad that you are enjoying reading as well as looking. I think Texas and Nevada are pretty cool places! 🙂
Oh, yes, I definitely like to read your posts. I learn a lot from them.
We’ve seen the burros down in Oatman, Nevada and wild horses too, but we are still looking for “wild” bands of the burros. The burros in Oatman, while super cute, were overly friendly. They were really town residents. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos!
Thanks Keevan. They are out there. 🙂
Love the photos, and you got some facts about them that I didn’t know 🙂 I’ve only seen burros in the wild a couple times (I see wild horses every week.) They seem to be extremely intelligent. Thank you for an interesting post!
Thank you Maria. Here is hoping you see more of the burros. 🙂
I didn’t realize how fluffy burros are. Terrific pictures. I particularly love the first one of the dark stallion.
Thank you Elizabeth. I have to find a baby for you to see how truly fluffy they can be. I have a new mission. 🙂
Ooo, yes please!
Very nice shots ~
Thank you for visiting and commenting Dalo. 🙂
They are so cute!! 😀 Great photos, Alison!
Thanks Calee. 🙂
I had not heard of the wild Burro before, learn something new every day. Nice photos. I think they look cute! 🙂
Thanks Inger. I like them out there. I saw this band again yesterday. No babies yet.
Would be so fun to see some photos Burro babies. I’ll keep my fingers crossed!
You always take the most stunning photos! 🙂
Thank you Eva. Very nice of you to say. 🙂
