Cripple Creek

Cripple Creek, Colorado is located at the base of Pike’s Peak. Back more than a 100 years ago the area was the focus of all those prospectors who went West to get rich. Now it is more a casino and tourist town than mining. (In other words, people are still attempting to get rich in Cripple Creek.)

Although the miners are long gone, their donkeys are still there. Well, not exactly their donkeys, but the descendants, of the descendants, of the descendants …

When we got there, Roger and Sally said we might not see them, sometimes they’re off in a pasture somewhere, but we went up a hill and alas … the donkeys of Cripple Creek.
