Re: for a second,

yeah, felt sry for this dude, he looked like he wanted/needed help. The desert is a much harher environ than the Canadian Rockies to be sure. Our dog has a slightly bigger belly!

Wild Eyes!

Great photo! Can you believe that I never ever saw a coyote in Red Rocks. I do see lots of their droppings all the time.

Re: Wild Eyes!

well, I have never seen a burro yet Anya and getting quite peturbed about it....thinking you locals might be making this up and spreading equine dung all over the place during the night...heading into Black Velvet today, maybe it is my lucky day...

Evil eyes

That guy has eyes that just cut right into you.
I think I'd always worry a bit about rabies and one thing about burros, they generally aren't rabid. : )

Re: Evil eyes

he was tired and ill, no question...felt sorry for him....the desert is a rough place compared to the richer alpine environment for predators. Still have not seen my first burro Dean....heard them bray several times while I was climbing, but never seen one yet..growing impatient.... Cheers
