Mummies and Burros

Saturday morning, nice and early, a couple of the boys and i drove out to Ned Houk Park to hike. A grass fire had been through the back fields of the park some time early this spring and it made for really easy walking. Where normally there would be 6-18 inches of dry grass and spiky weeds, there was bare sand, with grass nubs, and yuccas with the all the dry spines singed off so that they looked kind of like pineapples.

Along a fence line we found the dry carcass of a dog or coyote and i had to take photos. This grizzly scene was later counterbalanced by a paddock of cute little old burros.
