Oatman Arizona

Oatman is an old gold mining town known for its "wild" burros...



It is also located on the longest, continuous stretch of historic Route 66 still left...


When I first entered Oatman, there was a large group of Asian tourists wandering all over main street taking pictures and oblivious to everything around them (even the burros had enough sense to get out of the way of oncoming traffic)...



Fortunately, the local sheriff stepped in and quickly restored law & order in town...


Caveat: Parking for your buggy can be a little difficult...


Lastly, for those young-at-heart but a little older in other places, remember the 60s TV show Route 66. Perhaps, Buz and Tod stopped here to fill up the corvette...
