FMTSO: Flora, Fauna and/or Pets
Where the wild things grow......
Red Rock Canyon is an extremely popular area for hiking and biking. Here, you will come across wild burro, cactus and other plant life that I have not identified as I am terrible at horticulture. The following photos were taken in Red Rock a few months ago.
The above picture was taken in a hilarious moment.
A friend and I had just eaten at the restaurant located at Bonnie Springs in Red Rock Canyon and my friend had some potato wedges and something else to take home to her son.
We spotted a couple of wild burro near the road so we stopped to take some photos.
Well, the burro pictured above got a whiff of the food and hewalked over to our car and stuck his head through the car window.
My friend was screaming because she was afraid of the burro.
I was laughing my ass off and told her to give him a treat.
So she gave it a potato wedge and the burro kept trying to get more.
My friend ended up feeding the burro the entire contents of her "to go" box.
It really was a hysterical moment.

She has some health problems but still gets around really well.
That's it for my flora and fauna.
