Burros At Spencer's Hot Springs

DesertDale took this photo in 2010, not far from our rig.

Good afternoon folks.  I just forgot to post the one about Bog Hot-Springs.  It is posted now.  Not a exciting adventure.

We have arrived at Spencer's Hot Springs, along with the wind.  We take our early morning walks, plus DesertDale rides his KTM before that wind starts to blow. 
DesertDale said it is going to blow tomorrow also, up to 18 miles mph.

We did have a early morning wake up call, by the burros. just out side our window.  This photo was taken this morning.  Love to watch them, even if they do wake us up singing.

Wild Burros range through a the desert, habitats as long as they are within about10 miles of stuff they call water.

Wild Burros were first introduced into the Desert Southwest by Spaniards in the 1500s.  They originally came from Africa.
They have long ears, a short mane and can reach a height of up to 5 ft. Their  colors are from  black to brown to gray.
They are very sure-footed.  They feed on a variety of plants, such as Mormon Tea, Palo Verde and Plantain.
The female give birth only once a year.

Summer time when they will look for food only at night or early morning.
They can live as long as 25 years.
The wind is blowing so hard, we had to close the windows, to keep that dust out, but it did not keep much out.  Cleaned like hell, this morning.

Hope you all are enjoying your mate, as I am mine.
