Eider and the humans left Las Vegas and arrived in Oatman, Arizona.
This is an old west ghost mining town on the famous Route 66. Gold was discovered in 1863 and a large gold rush started in 1915.
Now the population of Oatman, according to their post cards, is 150.
Oatman attracts tourists that travel Route 66. The turtle ranch has big turtles.
Eider is on a post and
there is a large turtle behind him heading for the building.
A main attraction is the group of wild burros that roam freely through town.
Tourists often feed them carrots and burro chow, available in several stores.
Some tourist attractions include Wild West shootouts and on July 4 they cook eggs on the sidewalk, using some solar devices. This really is an old western town.
Oatman has several photo opportunities.
There are also many signs
expressing the independent spirit
of the early residents.
This souvenir store tries to capitalize on the wild burro residents.
Oatman, Arizona is located in the
Black Mountains of Arizona.
This is certainly a different type of town.
So glad you sent the pictures Eider. Thanks again for sharing with us.
