Oct 18, 2008 - Wild Burros

The drive through Nevada is always desolate and long, but as we were nearing the Oregon border we drove through the Sheldon Wildlife Refuge and saw some wild burros a ways off the side of the hiway. We turned around and went back for a better look. As luck would have it there was a little dirt road that took us right to the burros. We got some really great up close pictures. Surprising to see a black and white burro.

The sage brush is actually pretty dressed in its fall colors.

Below is a picture of our route from Salt Lake City to Lakeview, Oregon. Even though the speed limit was 75 mph and the roads are relatively straight, the days trip was nearly 10 hours. We filled the gas tank in Winnemucca.
