Our first sighting of wild burros near the campsite.
They graze and browse peacefully throughout the park.
Burros and mountains to the northeast of camp.
Stalking the lone burro!
The wild burro is a descendant of pack animals brought to the Americas by the Spanish. Here's a link to the BLM Wild Horse and Burro information page.
They are somewhat shy...
A quick pose before ambling away.
Creosote bush in bloom at sunset. We're really enjoying the longer days and mild evening temperatures.
The evening antics usually include "extreme" sports, and surprisingly, rarely result in injury.
The Growing Moon rises over the mountains to the east.
