The Western United States has a rich history in gold and silver mining, The state of Nevada alone has 600 old ghost towns and mining sites. There isn't much left in many locations but along the old Route 66 the gold mining town of Oatman, Arizona is one that has found new life as a tourist destination. It has been at least 15 years or more since we were last in this area, so we were a bit surprised to see how busy it was. Still we enjoyed walking the streets and looking at the wild burros that wander freely through the town.
I was lucky to get close enough to actually touch a couple of burros. Unfortunately, when The Investigator tried to pet one he had to move pretty quickly to keep from getting bit! So, he stood a safe distance away.
We were treated to an old fashioned gunfight.
After a warm and dusty day we were happy to return to our rv park and enjoy the cool refreshing breeze along the Colorado River.
We continue to have difficulties with our wifi connections but hopefully I will be able to share more of our journey very soon.
