Antelope Plus Burros At Alkali Hot Springs

Good morning.  What a fine morning it has started out to be.  With no other then DesertDale and the "Alkali Hot Springs". 
The small pot, to the left, is the hottest one.  The big pool, up front, is big enough to swim in.
 We have even had the "burros" singing  to us.

The Wild Burro was first introduced into the Desert Southwest by Spaniards in the 1500s.
They can tolerate water loss as much as 30% of their body weight., and replenish it in only 5 minutes drinking.

They  are reproducing out here in this hot desert. 

The antelope are found in Northern and Central Nevada.  Wildlife mangers have helped antelope extend their range in Nevada through many transplants and water developments.

These photos , that DesertDale has taken, are just a few of the reasons we are on the road. 

Nature we love and enjoy.
