We visited Santa Fe yesterday. According to one of our travel guides, Burro Alley is one of the top 10 sights in Santa Fe’s old town.

Burros carried firewood on their backs down this notorious alley lined with gambling halls in the 1830s and 40s.

“For many years, the people of Santa Fe relied on the burro for their welfare.”   

We were an entire 50 miles away from home and the boys. Don demonstrated how easy it is to go into donkey withdrawal.
