Lake Pleasant, Az.

Wild burro outside of Phoenix

Lake Pleasant is only 35 miles outside of Phoenix and is a great location to see desert vegetation, mountains and possibly wild burros! I love finding the burros. On one of my trips to Lake Pleasant (different year), I saw several burros at the lake but when I returned a few years later I couldn't find a single one. On this trip I had to settle on photographing the surroundings and enjoying the cooler breeze.

At sunset I headed back to Phoenix and stopped on a service road just outside of town. I've seen burros there before and as luck would have it, that's where I found them. I guess folks in Arizona think I'm crazy chasing down the burros but they would probably do the same for white tail deer here in Indiana.
